Hi Everyone, I am extremely excited that my first Meerschaum pipe is being shipped from Altinok. Living in Michigan with winter approaching, I am concerned about the effect the weather will have on the pipe itself. From what I have read about Meerschaum, it seems to be more of a rock than anything else. I know freezing temperatures can cause expansion and contraction and hence cracking in rock/concrete, etc... My wife is the staunchest of anti smoking nazis and relegates all of my smoking tobacco and equipment to the garage which will at times drop below freezing over the next three to four months. I have looked all over and have never seen this issue addressed anywhere. Do I need to worry about damage coming to my pipe stored under such conditions?
