  Jump right on in and " git 'er done".  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D :D :D :D
All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.

Seriously ..
I dont think there will be a problem...
But dont ask us Kiwis or Aussies, we dont go out sawing if it's that cold  :D

There is no particular problem with sawing frozen logs.   They do not cut as fast, when solid frozen there is some slowdown required, nothing tremendous.  There is not a lot of difference in softwood. Having said that, the first time I made a dull blade walk by "forcing it" was in a frozen piece of White Oak on an 8" vertical cut.  The blade went out for retensioning after that exercise... chalked that one up as a learning experience  ::)
