Roof Repairs in the Cold

First time user and not-that-handy of a man. Need to replace a few shingles that have blown off my roof. Got the instructions from the site on how to do it. Only question is that after I relpace them, what should I do about the shingles sticking together? I know that if it was warm weather they would stick together pretty easily, but in late Feb/early March that won't happen.

Anyone with suggestions let me know. Thanks.

This is a cold-weather-shingling "Jack the Contractor" tip:
WARM the shingles before they're installed in cold weather to help them stick.
I'd put them in front of a heating vent register or something to make sure that they're good and warm and have someone hand them up to me one at a time, if you just have a few to replace.
Good Luck!
