I am going to set up a testing area in my shed with the tf100 kit. What storage conditions are needed for everything that comes in it? I am in NY and wondering if I can leave it over the winter and I am assuming it would be fine in high heat in the summer?

No. You cannot allow it to freeze or get too hot. By far, we suggest that you test indoors.

It's really easy to take a small water sample with a small styrofoam cup (maybe 1/2 of the cup) and then go into the kitchen and stay comfortable and perform all your tests.

You can still test out there, no worries. Just make sure you bring your test kit inside with you and store it in a cool, dark closet. I take mine out to test every day and return it to its closet when I'm done. The nice thing about the TF-100 is it's largely self-contained and easy to carry.
