I had to do it in Evanston, IL, one winter but do not recommend it.
You will fall, probably several times. The 250R plastics will be brittle in the cold and stuff may break that wouldn't in warmer temps with the same impact.
If you do do it, Sorels, insulated one-piece coveralls, and ski gloves should get you a couple miles down the road. I was a grad student, so I could stash shoes and hang the coveralls in my office.
