You don't need really thick socks unless you are aiming at lengthy periods out in seriously cold conditions. If you do not need to plug your car in overnight, it is not seriously cold.

Want to warm up your hands and feet? Wear a hat! (A proper winter hat, not a fedora or baseball cap )
Long underwear is also key, especially on the legs ... that blood warms up in the trunk, and has to go all the way down the legs to get to your feet, so the heat will get drained away to warm the legs first, if needed, leaving less for the feet.
Be there or be square. Only I can do both!
I've got a cat named Beefeater and a dog named Beefeater, and two goldfish called Beefeater and Beefeater. There's Beefeater my hamster and Beefeater my horse, and my piglet, known as Beefeater of course.
