You said it didn't start yet, so I wouldn't worry about it too much. Seriously, if it starts falling on your way there, you really have nothing to worry about unless it's a 10 inch blizzard. Especially if it's not wet snow, your tires should have pretty good traction in even us much as an inch of snow (I live in CT and drive a sedan, so I can handle a couple of inches perfectly fine). When it doubt, slow down, and take turns REALLY easy because you don't want to fishtail.
And like someone above said, don't brake and turn at the same time. One or the other. And pump your brakes, don't slam.
On a side note, one time I was driving home from work and the visibility was so bad that I actually had to turn off my headlights. Obviously turning them back on when I was anywhere near another car, but the glare off the snow was blinding.
Extra advice: -If it is sunny, wear sun glasses. The sun will reflect off of the snow and can be extremely distracting. Sun glasses reduce the glare and make driving a bit easier. -Assume black ice in the worst places to have black ice. Heck, assume it is everywhere, especially on back roads. -4WD cars will slide on ice. Trust me, I've gotten a pickup in 4WD High to go sideways (accidently.)
1. Don't brake and turn the wheel at the same time. Do one or the other
2. Find out if you have anti-lock brakes. If you DO, and you start to slide, push the brake pedal all the way down and keep it there. It will click and go oddly limp. But this actually means it's working.
(2.5 you can make your own de-icer spray by filling a spray bottle with rubbing alcohol.)
Having snow tires is a good idea. As is a shovel, a bag or two of sand in the trunk for traction, and maybe a bag of rock salt to melt the ice if you get stuck. Tire chains? Why not? Get some of that de-icer spray for your windshield. Beats scraping.
