unless the plastic moisture barrier has been compromised & the ceement's hard as a rock, you can still use the stuff would suggest you let it warm up,,, i'm not aware there's a shelf life to ceement

As an anchor now. Once open, or even if they are closed, and not kept in a dry area, you now have some fine boulders.
