Winter driving precautions in Chicago?

I just moved to Evanston, IL from North Carolina. It snowed about an inch today, and unlike what I'm used to, everything didn't shut down in panic. What do I need to know in order to make my driving commute a safe one?

I've looked up some advice on the internet, and it's basically talking about going really really slowly, and being aware that it's going to take a lot longer distance to brake. Do I need snow tires? Do I need to go hire some dude to teach me to drive on snow? Or am I probably OK as long as I stick to plowed streets?
