I live in the "country" in MD a low crime area. My vehicles have been searched and my neighbor had a six wheel Gator stolen from the shed next to their house another neighbor had things stolen from the attached garage while they were inside. Keep your doors locked, get a barking dog, security camera, and keep your firearms within reach.

Humidity is not a problem in tightly capped powder containers. Unless you have some VERY old power in cardboard containers.

But, as has been mentioned, temp extremes and swings are not good for powder.

I keep mine in my basement. No more hazardous than paints and thinners.

Propellant (powder) is not water soluble and is little, if any, affected by humidity. Propellant is most affected by temperature extremes ( below -20f or above 140f). Primers are, to some degree, water soluble and are therefore affected by humidity. Firearms, being ferrous metal, are heavily affected by humidity. Even stainless steel will rust if exposed to enough moisture for a long enough period of time.
