What is the worst kind of COLD?

<< < (2/8) > >>

In the past couple of years, I've been hiking at -15 in Rocky Mountain National Park and in New Orleans when it was 45 and drizzling. I've rarely been as cold as I was in New Orleans. The humidity makes the chill go straight to the bone.

I'm currently dealing with a head cold, so that's all I could think about when I first saw the thread title. For that kind of cold, my answer would be sore throat + constant nasal drip + constantly feeling like you could sneeze at any moment.  :meh:

As far as cold weather, I had to go with 40 and windy because I don't have a huge issue with any of the other three options. 30 and snow is just standard winter weather; without that, there would be no winter. 15 and sunny can be beautiful if there's fresh snow, and 35 and rainy is ugly if you're outside, but it's also the kind of weather that makes one feel warm inside - perfect for snuggling up on the couch with a warm drink, something to read, and a fire in the fireplace.

I've done something like this (taking out the garbage, for example) probably more times than I can count. My mom says it's the Scandinavian blood that prevents one from getting too cold. I say it's just because I'm a big, well-insulated person, so I'm too warm much more often than too cold - although I suppose that does relate to one's genealogy as well.

Single digits to double digits below zero with around 20 to 40 below zero wind chill and 30 to 45 MPH gusts to boot. Hellgate Canyon is very much a funnel of this bitter cold during the winter. Already this winter, there were three bouts of cold spells between December and February in the Missoula Valley. I wouldn't wanna be in Highline or eastern Montana where they don't have the mountains to buffer the much bitter cold.

I jinxed myself so bad. My eyes have been watering nonstop and I've been feeling like I could sneeze at any moment for about three straight hours. I finished a box of tissues this morning, went through another whole box, and I'm on to my third box and it's not even noon yet!  :crazy:
