I am wondering if my sentence is grammatically correct. Is it correct to write "impatient to get warm"?

After the bus passed by a bus stop without stopping, Bob frozen and impatient to get warm, spewed out a series of curses and insults.

"Impatient to get warm" is OK. The sentence doesn't establish that Bob is waiting at the bus stop; the reader has to guess that. You could revise it: Bob, shivering and impatient to get warm after waiting at the bus stop for a frozen half-hour, cursed and insulted the oblivious driver as the bus flew by without stopping.
