I find that flipping into 4x4 does help. I'm a reasonable and concientious driver to begin with...you know...make sure you're not too close to someone, go speed limit, don't drink coffee and put on makeup () while driving, stop for mother ducks crossing the road with her ducklings, avoid skirmishes with 3 year olds on bikes...etc.

4x4 for me works well in less than perfect conditions for the most part.

I agree with the winter tire stuff, but I'm of Scottish decent and am much too cheap to go that route.

BTW: Why in hell's are we arguing about winter driving. I think my tires melted to the pavement today. We should be arguing about how to properly BBQ a hamburger or how to cool off the house best. Our power went down for an hour today, and man I missed my fans.
