Then I get sucked into it because half the time I can't see them until I'm already committed, and I have to brake to avoid hitting them...

I really love driving in snow, but only when all the other morons are somewhere else.
That's my general consensus as well. I'm used to driving in snow around Cleveland where I grew up and now live 2 hours south (well out of the snow belt.) When ever we get a mild snow fall, people just forget how to drive and I have to go on the defensive trying to avoid dumb drivers. The focus is predictable in the snow and hasnt caused me any issues due to the weather. I just have to expect my commute to take longer from dumb drivers who drive too slow when the roads are plowed and then too fast when they arent cleared.
