After spending 5 years in Canberra I never used water to clear my windscreen, start the car and while she's warming up - use the front and rear demisters. That way your screens warm up and your engine/transmission has less stress when you take off.
Agree with your comment about hot water I saw a windscreen shatter and blow out because someone boiled a kettle and poured it straight on to a cold screen, only thing that saved her eyes were her glasses.
Enjoy the snow
