I want store my wmdoll 157b in the garage when family visits, as I am concerned about someone discovering her. I live in a part of the country that experiences bitter cold temperatures. She could be in temps of -30F for several days. Is this a problem? Should I find an alternative?

TPEs can typically withstand cold environments such as cryogenic storage at around -30°C (-22°F). Morphologic change could begin around -60°C (-76°F) where TPEs could harden

In the freezing cold it should be fine. Some considering long term outdoor storage have been concerned about the possibility of mold growth on TPE in the spring when temperature and moisture levels fluctuate a lot. To my knowledge no one has reported actually trying it.
