How do I adjust from sunny LA to freezing cold Virginia?

Have you ever moved from a warm, mild climate like Los Angeles, to one that experiences four seasons - and did you do so in the dead of winter?
What was it like? What do you wish you had known beforehand? In other words, what am I, a native Angeleno currently taking for granted?

A compelling job offer has me seriously considering moving from Los Angeles to Arlington, VA. I will most likely be relocating mid-January 2010. Unfortunately, I have never
lived in a four-season climate, much less moved myself and all of my belongings to one.
I found this
thread, but am hoping more LA transplants can respond.
Long, diverse, rambling responses are most welcome - I really want to know the kind of impact a rapid shift in climate can make in peoples' lives. Thanks in advance:-)
