I would forgo a weber lid as you may have more trouble with loss of heat than the benefit of additional cooking space.
So Northern Lights really isn't atmospheric conditions but rather its you northern guys just messin' with fuel barrels and "night glows"??
Don't forget pictures as I'm sure many of us have no idea what its like up there.
If it gets to 30F i get cold. At -40f i would be more concerned with keeping myself warm and would not be worried about cooking.
