Default overheating. 92 gsx

Ok so I went out in the snow and long story short my radiator and got covered in snow and I noticed it was close to overheating. I stopped and eventually got it home. I now have no heat blowing threw my vents and my battery and abs light are dimmely lit up.. ive replaced the thermostat and still the same thing happens. Any ideas? Waterpump?

Water pump or low on coolant.

i wouldnt think that the radiator being covered in snow would make it overheat. snows cold already and the heat from the radiator would melt it almost right away. check both radiator hoses to see if ones cold. also make sure you installed you thermostat properly because ive had people come into the shop that did it themselves and put it in the wrong way. as far as the lights, that would be an electrical problem so get the battery and alternator tested. just some ideas.
