Will prolonged low temps harm things like anti-seize, threadlock etc?

looks like -20F is a good number to assume for anti seize

Cured Locktite Blue is good to -65F

There is more to be gained by members raising hands saying "I'll do that" instead of pointing fingers saying "nobody's doing that."

I have gotten into the habit of moving my aerosols inside during the winter months, after having a few go dead in the spring.

Come to think of it, I just moved ALL of my stuff inside, except brake fluid, grease, oil and coolant.

why not?

I just turn on the heater in the garage. Really comfortable to work out there too! Seriously, I pull all my paint, glues, etc. into my office from the warehouse in the winter at work.

I picked up a furnace on Freecycle and keep the garage about 45F .
