Cold -vs- warm wood

Pete in Holland, MI
>Tis winter here in Michigan now (in the 20's most of this past week). Bowl turner "on the learn" here. Have you green bowl turners found it easier on the wood to bring it in and allow it to warm up to the house temperature, or is it fine its cold state to rough turn bowls from ? Have some wood with sentimental value that I want to reduce any risks in the bowl making process.

Many thanx !
