Remember to keep your gear warm, not sure at what temp a shutter/mirror would freeze. Plenty of batteries and CF cards too Maureen.
You actually want to do the opposite. . You want to keep your gear cold.
When you're outside shooting the gear gets cold (obviously). . Then, if it comes into a warm vehicle or building, it will fog up on the inside of the lens and this internal fog will take hours and hours to go away. . So you want to make sure that once your gear gets cold, it stays cold. . When you bring it back into a warm area, it is best to wrap it in a coat or something to keep it from warming up.
Shutters and mirrors don't freeze up in normal winter temperatures. . I've used my Canon gear at 20 below zero and had no problems whatsoever. . I'm sure others have used gear in much colder temperatures and never had any problems either. . In fact, my friend who lives near Prince George, BC, regularly goes out shooting in 30 and 40 below, and has never mentioned anything about gear malfunctions.
"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "peace of mind", NOT "piece of mind".
