Is it possible to keep the presets/and the rules (traditional Theravada) of ordinated people in Countries with 4 seasons, let me say in countries where the temperature can be under 0° C for a longer period?

One would not be able to rest where he finds him self in the evening. So there are much things to think of. Beginning by food till the place one can stay, the traveling, the clothes... By not asking for support, one would fast come into troubles. Some days of snow storm, would not give you the chance to go for begging...
Not to harming is the root of the monk rules. A guideline to protect one self by protecting others.
For sure there would be a way if some laypeople take permanent care, but would that also in fact violate the precepts?
