There's a wealth of information on these and other topics in the Bike Winter Group.
Thanks! I didn't find it before this.

I love winter riding! The city does a decent job of clearing snow (Try riding in the suburbs on the first day of a snow fall), so you won't have too much of an issue as far as riding in actual snow. I opt for stability/security versus efficiency, which is why I ride wider tires. That's just because I am a cluts and the wider tires with knobby tread help the weebles wobbles on slushy wet snow/ice. I'd wait a couple of days after the first snow of the season for safety, just because it seems people forget how to drive. My biggest issue with bitter cold was figuring out how to protect my face, cold air hitting my lungs is bad for my asthma, but I get claustrophobic. You will find plenty of good advice in bike winter. Have fun, stay safe and well lit. I just may get some of those neon glowing lights just to make sure I can be seen from space this year.
