I bought electric gloves just for that, last winter, but they only helped a little. My hands will go numb from cold while I'm riding, but Raynauds is more aversive and take longer to go away.

I seem to be able to do the commute down to the single digits, which is about all we get around here. I will only do workouts when it's above 25 F and not blowing too hard.
That's mighty hardy! For a long time, I used to throw in the towel at about 20, for both commutes (when I was still in NY) and recreation. I tend to go a little lower than that these days, but single digits is pushing it.

As an aside, is the Metro not convenient to you? PT, and not having to own a car, is one of the things that I miss most about NYC.
