I live in FL but ride 40k a year or so ~ much of this is accomplished during the winter in states North of my home. I have the Entire HD/Gerbing heated suit ~ I am hooked ~ but have ridden up to 1000 miles in a day in 40 degrees and less. For the Short runs I do not put the gear on. The heated socks definitely work well but for the day rides I would probably recommend a waterproof boot and a quality sock. ~ SemperFi
