Can these bulbs be stored in a location where they will freeze?

Assuming they are spring hardy bulbs, they can take some higher freezing temperature (in the 30Fs and very upper 20Fs), but I would not place them somewhere where they will get low freezing temps and I would not place them where they would get long periods of any freezing. An attached garage will work and many people store their bulbs in their vegetable drawer in their fridge for the winter too. The fridge is cold enough for their blooming cycle but is safe from damaging them.
