Welcome to the forums. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
I live in VA, not that far from NC and I keep my potted VFTs outdoors all winter. *They get rained on, snowed on and frozen and they do just fine. *They are tough little plants.
If you want to be safe you could maybe pack a little mulch around the outside of the pot to protect it a bit. *You could put it in the garage...but you will have to remember to water it instead of letting Ma Nature take care of that outdoors. *If I did that, I'd probably forget to water it...(like I just did 40 african violets I moved upstairs...
