          My gosh man! You're a tough hombre.

          Been averaging about 18-30F here with windchill a few degrees colder and I've been whining like a baby.

            It's very warm tonight, thankfully... probably 20-25F, and no wind.

            Last night was brutal. Sun went down while I was finishing the last one and temp dropped like a rock... went from tolerable to around zero, plus light wind, within an hour or so.

              What kind of coat/layers do you wear to work in those conditions?

                alex, you need to buy the dvdpak. you need the oled unit.

                i can tell you that it's pretty much water tight, unless you drop it in the pool.

                even the dvd slide has a rubber gasketed seal.

                i'm surprised that your unit has lasted as long as it has.

                  standard everyday dress is long johns, jeans, not-quite-sorels, t-shirt, work shirt, fleece vest, and water shedding vest. hat and gloves come and go as needed, insulated bibs go on over all when it gets cold, parka over that when it gets way cold. insulated poop suit when it's brutal.

                  really, it's not a huge problem, just sucks when it's truly brutal and I've got to get dressed up for one, then get undressed for an inside one so I don't sweat to death, then get dressed again for an outside one all day long.

                  biggest personal problem is keeping wet hands warm when outside and have to take gloves off to do something fiddly.

                  I'm sure vince and others deal with a lot worse than I do.

                  worst is keeping the equipment alive; jetter hoses freeze up quick and ruin your night when they do.

                  camera could care less about a little snow, but if I don't get it out before it melts it makes problems.

                    Good test ground for equipment.
