Never been in a -30c situation,
Essential eclipse equipment list,
"scope, camera, tripod, snow shovel" : cheer:
Imagine totality in a snow white environment, it would have been cool, very very cool.!;)
We could have gone ice skating in the lake afterwards.

Carrying around my 20" obsession is going to kill me,
but what a way to go. :)

As opposed to playing 'dodge the 18 wheeler' on the road of death back into Novosibirsk!

:laugh:

I think I'd prefer the -30 degrees!!!
