Where should you store your barrel in winter?

When possible, store your rain barrel in a protected indoor area. If the rain barrel must remain outside, either turn it upside down and secure it, or weight it down by storing garden equipment inside the barrel (barrels behave like ping pong balls in heavy winds when empty). Then put a heavy plastic bag over the top to prevent animal inhabitation and water accumulation which can freeze, expand, and potentially crack the barrel wall.
