Re: frozen locks

I've found that spraying a bit of WD40 into the lock cylinder and then 
working the lock a bit with your key (and then cleaning the junk off the 
key) does the trick.  I don't live in NH, where it is a bit colder than 
it tis in Oregon.  But I go skiing several times a year.  Since I've been 
doing this WD40 trick I've not had a problem with frozen locks.
