I have purchased some flooring that I won't be able to install for a couple weeks. I live in Canada and the winter is on its way, so the temperature is beginning to reach freezing. Is it okay to store the flooring in my garage if I'm sure the floor won't be wet?

It is fine to temporarily store the flooring in a cool dry place, However, You will need to bring it into the climate in which it will be installed for a few days so that it will acclimate to the conditions before installation.
