But you are also quite capable of dealing with it...
You say that but I know someone who had the misfortune to be in Finland when they had their first heavy snow of the winter, earlier than most years. They completely failed to cope with many many hours of travel delays and apparently that's a near-annual occurence for the first heavy snow, as it takes time for people to change vehicles over to winter tyres and government to get the winter works programme started and so on... but then it just works for the rest of the winter.
In a way, most of the UK has a tougher time dealing with temperatures bouncing over freezing point for months.
Surely one can change the tyres early just in case
Or use 4-season tyres as I do
