Regionally, we find different idioms and slang for nearly everything from Ice cream to grinders. In the next couple of weeks we are facing weather that is what could be called in new England as “Brick Cold.” For those of you who are new to the area I wanted to share a few phrases that would be used toe describe the cold weather approaching.

 

1. Cold as the Hinges of Hell

2. As Cold as Finnegan’s feet the day they buried him.

3. Colder than a brass toilet seat in the Yukon

4. Shivers = Flesh-creep

5. Whizzing Cold or Cold as a Whiz

 

This should get you started, however there are dozens more that you could possible hear over the course of the next couple weeks. Its expected to be below freezing until 7 January, when the mercury climbs to a balmy 35 degrees.
