All these fun events are easy enough to deal with on a point to point trip, and I'm not particularly worried about them, but with a RTW with 20 segments things could get nasty, no?

I've been to NA many times, but never in winter, so would appreciate the advice of the local guys.
Honestly no. There are very, very few days when a major US airport closes for snow.

Think about this. UA has a hub in Denver and Chicago. American has a hub in Chicago. Northwest has a hub in Detroit and Minneapolis. US Air has a hub in Philadelphia. If snow was a serious factor then the US air transport system would not function.
