This trucker wasn't having that 40mph speed so he flies past everyone and nearly flies off the road himself trying to pass the trucks that were taking up both lanes.
Howdy neighbor, I'm in western Washington State and man we Can Not drive in snow on this side of the mountains at all. A light dusting and we freak out and really rightly so, we have problems with black ice a lot. I'd rather drive through a lot of snow than on a sheet of ice.

I live in eastern Washington state and we get a lot of snow each year. Two most important things, slow down, and increase your following distance. Most people get the first one just fine but ignore the second. Nothing worse than white knuckling it on a packed snow/ice road and having some delta bravo behind you at one car length.
For some reason people forget every freakin year how to drive in the snow, even with the local news constantly repeating "slow down, increase following distance".

Canadian boy here.
My suggestion is to learn to drive in snow in a parking lot like you did as a teen learning to drive.
Once people get the hang of it,its a piece of cake....I don't think or look twice when I see one of my fellow Canadians ripping down the street after a snowstorm.
We are Canadians so driving in snow is what surfing is to a California beach bum.
