I went to Columbus today to photograph these nice people inside a deep freeze room with a vast collection of ice cores. When I got there, I asked them just how cold it was in that room and they said "about minus 20". "Excuse me?" I was expecting it to be just below freezing. I had no idea if my camera gear would even work in there. The camera gear was less trouble than my fingers which started hurting real bad after about 15 minutes. Poor Dr. Thompson's nose turned white but he's used to it. That's me on the right saying "We're done... why are we still in here??" Thanks to Jack Houvouras for manning the camera to get a shot of me. At first Jack said he wasn't even going in there, but then he proved his manhood and stayed in there just as long as any of us.
