On Friday morning, de Blasio shoveled snow in the driveway of his Brooklyn home. Politicker said he informed the reporters at the press conference that his ensemble kept him sufficiently warm during the shovel session.

"When you’re shoveling–shoveling is a fine form of exercise, let me just tell you. I didn’t have to go to the gym today," said de Blasio. "So during the shoveling, no. Cold was not my challenge. My back was my challenge. But it worked out."
