If you must water your kayaks and get your fix it'd certainly be a low consequence method of getting the feel of your new kayaks and a chance to work on wet exits and other watery fun without the Eskimo Pie Headache effect, and without the same cost as immersion gear.
You planning on hitting the water soon? I know that the past two days have been abnormally warm but I think winter is supposed to still be in full effect.
I have a Paddler's Pool Practice on 2/10 at the Culinary Inst. in Hyde Park, NY depending on what your defining as Upstate NY in your profile. DACC (Duanesburg, NY) near Schenectady is another option if you're in the North Country.
Kudos to you for looking beyond the "Got kayak and go!" heedless of the conditions set.
See you on the water,
