I currently have an Xbox Live gold membership, and I am uploading all my saved games to the Xbox 360 cloud storage.

According to this article you need a gold membership to use cloud storage.

What I fear is, the day my gold membership expires, will I suddenly be unable to access my saved games?

If your Xbox Live Gold membership expires, you'll still have read access to your cloud save games (see here). In order to use them in a game you'll have to copy them to another storage device so the game can make a new save, of course.

I tried to link directly to the question on Xbox Support that answers this question, but it doesn't seem to work. Just scroll down to "Cloud storage is only available to Xbox Live Gold members". –  Adeese Aug 18 '12 at 13:16
Got it. Thanks! –  stoldark Aug 18 '12 at 13:54
