Skibik: The fuel filter will not necessarily filter water out of fuel. It only really works to get solid particles out of the flow.

Antifreeze burning smells sweet. Best description I can give.

The rest sounds normal. Lots of temperature change between the pipes and the outside. The vapor inside the exhaust pipes has been heated to a very high temperature (after the catalytic converters) and is just venting off the steam it has generated from the exhaust gasses that condensed in the pipes from the last time it was run. Short trips are hard on cars for a variety of reasons - this is one that tends to corrode out exhaust systems. Longer trips burn/evaporate the vast majority of water vapor present in the system from the last run and keep it drier.

Yeah, that is what I had thought on the filter but wasn't sure.

A number of years ago in our snowmobiles and even in cars we used Heet in the winter and then they came out with Isopropyl Heet and that was claimed to be better yet and keep the water from freezing up the fuel lines. I think it was hoopla but we used it anyway. I quit using it when they started adding 10% ethanol in the fuel.
