In this case, could you watch Mass on EWTN or a local channel that broadcasts? Could you go Monday morning, assuming roads got plowed/salted btwn Sunday morning and Monday?

If you are not able to fulfill your obligation you no longer have an obligation. The Church does not oblige the impossible.

You still need to sanctify your Sunday or Holy Day. That is the Third Commandment, and the Divine Positive Law. There are no exceptions to it. The Church Law, which is a human law, and the one that obliges Mass attendance and omitting servile work does admit of exceptions, like any human law.

You could sanctify that day by taking time to follow a televised Mass, or by reading the Mass prayers, or by saying an extra Rosary, or spending some time in mental prayer or spiritual reading, or listening to sermons or Catholic conferences, etc. ...

...but you no longer, if you cannot reasonably make it to Mass have an obligation to go to Mass. You are not fulfilling this non-existent obligation by doing substitute works, but you are fulfilling the Third Commandment.
