    Winter is horrible, it's like 10 degrees here with windchill factors an shit. I can't wait for fuckin spring, cause there's no way I'm wandering around for 3 or 4 miles hitting up buildings.

    But as for the topic, what I found was easy to do was (if you're fuckin old enough to drive like me) hold a can or two up to your heater inside and turn it on high. Then run out like the goddamn dickens and spit your fill and outline. Hop in, drive really fast making sure to hit a squad car on the way back to the safehouse.

    here in finland it's -20 C atm, but we're still painting, and no problems. just remember to wear warm clothes & gloves. i use leather gloves, some use cotton gloves under gardening gloves... those latex gloves suck on wintertime. and shake your cans well, you have to shake them all the time to keep them from freezing... and some cans don't cover as well as they do on warmer conditions, but otherwise, paint like it's summer. but don't use latex or paint frozen walls. ;)

    if you can get like downtown with your paint, i love painting in shit. one night it was fucking -15, no lie. and i was out for 2 and a half hours bombing the east side of my city. [good ol' rochester ny] and i mean you gotta dress warm as fuck i had like thermal pants and shirt, a pair of jeans, timberlands, 2 t-shirts 1 hoodie, pair of baseball gloves, and a black bandana and i mean i got a cold but i just took crazy amounts of zicam and that shit went away, but when its mad shitty like that there is NO ONE out.

    and you gotta remember
    the cops hate running in the cold just as much as you do ;)

    While you drive to the spot just put your cans in a bag/box in the footwells and put the heater on high that way the cans get warm...

    Once you'Re there get a lunchbox or something that can fit all your cans in and throw the cans in... a pocket warmer can help also...

    The point is a insulated lunchbox keep stuff cold OR hot... so basicallly you are extending the time your cans stay hot!

    i got my hands on a ski mask/ balaclava they work great and cover your whole face keeping your face protected from frost bite.
    But just wear good clothes and shit...

    I disagree with the statement about high winds = mostly mist... Painted during hurricane "termoli" in italy 2003... my piece, as well as crew mates was crisp... like I said above... muscle through it... experience is the best thing you can bring with you when you go painting... reading about it online will only get you so far (not very far). Thats my take.
