some cup maintence questions

Seems like when I was doing research on cups, I read you should never store them in an airtight container.  What's the reasoning for this?  Would putting one in a clean ziplock bag for a few hours (max four) be a huge no-no? 

Does coldness have any effect on silicone?

The reason I'm asking is I'm getting symptoms that my period is probably coming up soon (it's pretty spectacularly irregular, but there are some give-away symptoms).  I'd like to take my cup to work with me just in case.  My work is very dusty.  I would not be at all comfortable using it if it sat there long in nothing but a cloth bag and didn't get washed.  I could leave it in the glove box, but I'm pretty far north, it's been way below freezing for a couple of nights now (I work a weird, short late night shift, so again, a max of four hours). 

I could always just put a pad in my back pocket again.  I don't want to risk anything icky.

Thanks for any advice you can give me!

*Edit* Thanks for all the reassurance and the ideas.  It's the weekend now, so it won't actually be an issue this time, but lots of inspiration for next time it turns up.  Thanks!
