Cold. Yet, again.


So it’s cold outside.  Why is this news worthy?  Every winter it gets cold and every winter the media trips, or slips and falls, over each other to come up with new and exciting ways to describe how cold it is outside.  Then they pull out the book of common sense and turn to the chapter on cold weather.  There is section on what words to use to best describe cold weather.  

cold, aguish, algefacient, algid, algific, arctic, biting, bitter, bleak, boreal, brumal, chelmaphilic, chill, chilly, clay-cold, clumpst, cold as Christmas, cold as a charity, cold as a frog, cold as a stone, cold as iron, cold as marble, cool, cool as a cucumber, cool as a custard, cooled, cooling, cutting, ectothermic, fireproof, freezing, fresh, frigid, frigolabile, frigorific, frore, frost-bitten, frost-bound, frost-nipped, frosty, frozen out, gelid, glacial, haematocryal, hibernal, hyemal, hyperboreal, hyperborean, ice-bound, iced, icing, icy, inclement, incombustible, isocheimenal, keen, lukewarm, marmoreal, nipped, nipping, nival, niveous, piercing, pinching, poikilothermal, raw, shivering, siberian, starved, subboreal, tepid, unflammable, uninflammable, unthawed, unwarmed, wintry

Yea, it’s a record cold for your area.  It hasn’t been this cold on this exact day since the great depression, etc. etc..  Yea yea.


So it’s cold, deal with it.


Ps.  My favorite is incombustible.
