    11 hours is a long time.

    Only time will tell.

    Candle in another 8 days.

    I'm not sure off the top of my head what 34 C is in F, but it doesn't seem to low. If anything it will just delay the hatch, so just don't give up on them if they're not on time. [​IMG] I had a hatch (also Marans) that dropped the temp to 70 F for about 8 hours b/c the power went out...they all did fine.
