No need to apologize, I rode the 20 miles to work everyday this week.
Thursday it was 15F when I left the house. And not a lick of NiChrome
wire in my clothes and no heated hand grips. Just lots of warm clothes

Snowboy? SNOWBOY? Ooooo, you better duck, 'cause I threw a snow ball
your way this morning! But seriously, we are in the middle of a drought
here in the Northern NJ/NYC area and you know what that means! Noooo
snow or ice on the roads and that means no salt or sand on the roads.
And that means I ride to work whenever I can. Otherwise I have to get up
earlier to catch a train, due to the single occupant vehicle ban in
lower Manhattan between 6&10am

Ahhhh. My sentiments exactly!
What I wear:
Patagonia expedition weight long johns
Chuck Roast Fleece pull-over (Polartec)
The Mews Fleece neck sock (Polartec)(I can tuck that up into the helmet)
Vanson Nylon pants with soft armor
Vanson CAVE jacket (this is the same jacket that I wear in the summer
with the zip down flaps that reveal perforated panels)
This nice set of winter riding gloves with Thinsulate (the tag fell off
and I don't know who made them)
My year round boots
Oh yeah, and a Shoei RF-900
