Cold weather riding

As I look out the window at our wonderful North OH snow falling today, I realized that I might need some new cold weather gear. What do all of you daring snow riders wear this time of year. CA riders need not reply.

Check the winter forum. We're all talking about what to wear over there.

I know that we need not reply, but I cannot resist...

short sleeves (versus no sleeves), arm warmers (if it is earlier than 8:00 AM), and maybe a light water resistant vest, but only during the month of February.

I'm also from Cleveland. Today I wore a Lands End soft shell jacket over a Coolmax long sleeve T, Performance Triflex tights, a wool cap, water proof socks (for wind protection) over wool socks and MTB shoes and WindPro gloves. My feet were a little cold for the commute but otherwise comfy. I probably should wear my booties for more foot warmth.
I tend to be warmer than most and I ride pretty hard so you may want an extra layer.
The jacket I used is available from Lands End Overstocks for $15 which is a great deal. Its not as breathable as some of the better jackets but at 1/10 the price it well worth it.
