Worth the money!
These boots rock! I bought them for snowshoeing, but I've found that they are great for the occasional Seattle snowstorm (I know, I know, all 5 inches of snow...), mid-winter trips out to northeastern Montana, and anything in between. You'll look at the plush lining and think that your feet will fry, but they really don't. I've worn them with Backcountry socks + liner socks and my feet were just right. You'll stay dry, have excellent traction, and they are easily paired with YakTrax in dicier situations.
