How cold are you? will your ink freeze outside in Duluth, MN?

Fountain pen ink is made up of a blend of solvents, pigments, dyes and water. Water will freeze at below 32F, but with other additives I recall reading that ink will definitely freeze at -47.8C or -54F.
So, best suggestion, don't order in ink the mail if, these days, you live anywhere North of the Bahamas. Upstate PA or anywhere NY you are going to be -20 to -30F BELOW tonite. Don't leave your ink outside.
