Sorry....there's no such thing as "too cold." You simply have improper clothing.
Yes, I can say that....I use to live at 4700+ feet elevation, high mountain desert in Idaho. We were outside working in 50 MPH blizzards, with the temperature down to NEGATIVE 70 (F) !!!!!
Frost bite danger within less than 5 minutes at that temperature. Since we were on a farm, we'd be outside caring for livestock for hours at a time.
You just need proper clothing. Then you can go outside at ANY temperature.
However when chores are done, and we are inside during the cold times, cooking, quilting, reading, letter writing, research, conversation, dinner & card games with close family friends, crafts, planning next years garden, caring for bottle babies (goats) in the house, play with the inside dog, mending tack (horse equipment), washing and carding wool, knitting, mending clothes, scrapbooking, watching the wild birds coming to the feeders, baking bread or cookies, making Christmas ornaments, geneology, candlewicking (fancy stitching on pillows), teaching my pet bird new tricks, oiling boots & gloves so they stay waterproof, tending the fires, rotating clothes drying on the racks in front of the woodstoves, painting.....well living on a farm, we never run out of interesting things to do. Hubby would fire up the wood stove in the shop, and pull vehicles in to work on them, no matter how cold, or windy outside.
Best thing though, is to invest in better clothes and get outside during the day, no matter what the weather is! We never get the winter blahs, because we are outside every single day, no matter the weather.
