Hey, Mnpsdog- I spent years cycling in the winter Northeast of there (UP) and recommend- ditch the SPD or ideas of wearing cycling footwear. Get some big beartraps without toeclips, or try toeclips, but just cycle in whatever footwear works. I'd cycle in anything from Bean Boots to sorels (heavy), or waterproofed hiking boots, or work boots, or tennis shoes with wool socks, or Air Force mukluks. I think I liked the mukluks the best. When it was blowing snow and five below, warm feet were more important that cycling "correctness" - toeclips w/o the straps let you use bigger footwear easier. Hope this helps.
