you hardly notice at all how cold you are when you have had a couple of martinis before you go out to shovel. i highly recommend it.
if you don't hear from me any time soon, send the st. bernards. i may be buried in snow. make sure the flask has gin in it. tangueray. otherwise don't bother. you will find my frozen rotten corpse sometime in may. that is when the snow will probably melt.
