Find an old chrome-moly Trek 800 series (26" wheel MTB) or 700 series (700c Hybrid). Plenty of room for big tires and fenders, cheap and easy to find, tough as nails. If you are going to ride in a lot of cold and wet, you might want to consider a conversion to a single-speed or fixie on a dedicated winter bike. Rear derailleurs are very vulnerable to ice and slop.
