I got back last Saturday from NW Vermont. It was so
cold that a lot of the winter activities were
impossible. The temps were in single digits and minus
numbers and don't even ask about the wind chill! 
While doing "inside" things, I came across a neat pair
of gloves while brousing in one of the ski equipment
shops. These are called BIOMAX THERMAL FLEECE and cost
$20. They are a combination glove & mitten. The
"mitten" cover can be folded back and held with a
velcro strip to reveal the four "glove" fingers that
have the finger tips exposed. I have made winter work
gloves before by cutting the finger tips off of
regular gloves. These are perfect. You can climb the
tower with the mitten covers over your fingers and
then fold them back to handle tools, hardware, etc. If
your finger tips get cold, just fold the mitten flaps
over your fingers for a few minutes. They are
lightweight and comfortable. I will probably be trying
them this weekend as I'm having some problems with a
balky prop pitch rotator.
