Storing Rainbarrels

Thanks to everyone who provided input regarding
storing and overwintering homeless perennials.  I have
another question for all of you experienced community
gardeners out there, particularly those in areas with
cold, icy winters.

What do you do with your rain barrels in the winter? 
Is it enough to remove the source of the incoming
water (i.e. rain gutter) and allow the barrel to
remain outside, or should it be stored indoors
somewhere to prevent damage from exposure?  We have
two thick plastic barrels, one of which has been
hooked up to the rain spout on a nearby building, the
other of which is still waiting to be installed
somewhere and is currently chained to the back of one
of our community compost bins.  Any advice on this
issue would be most welcome, this is my first
experience with rainwater collection systems and their
