Ensure the battery is fully charged before storing. If it is an automotive or marine starting battery, then the battery will be fine until spring (you may have to give the battery a slight charge before using). If the battery is a deep cycle or commercial battery, then you should charge once before storage and again in February and then again before using in the spring.
The battery should be stored in a cool, dry place. Outside in a garage is fine in terms of temperature, as it must be extremely cold before a fully charged battery will freeze. Heat actually does more damage to a battery than cold, so cooler is better.
Storing a battery on cement is fine. It may discharge marginally faster than on wood, but the difference is generally insignificant. The most important thing is to ensure there is nothing underneath the battery (such as a small stone or nail) that would damage the battery case while the battery sat on top of it all winter.
