Don't get much snow or ice here at all.
Island climate, surrounded by sea, catches the Gulf stream. Curiously, for all we have a reputation for gales and storms, I can drive top down almost all the time- we seem to get less rain than you'd expect. I used to run my Rover on a full winter tyres from November until April, but we haven't had a real winter for 6 or 7 years.
You're right though, if I had to choose a car to drive a snowy A9 in January the TF probably wouldn't be first pick.
