For me, my hands felt covered in ice cream walking my dog on this calm sunny morning of about 48 F.

I was dressed in a light weight long sleeve shirt, pants and shoes. Except for my hands the chill in the air did not feel that noticeable. I used my pockets sometimes. I noticed kids out in long sleeves not noticing the chill on their bare hands. When I was a kid I don't remember my fingers or hands being uncomfortable on days like this. (though my circulation situation feels a little better than a year ago, thanks to getting more excersize)

Anyone else?

(I'm using this to gauge my health, but also out of interest)

My hands and feet are the first to feel cold. Usually even if I have the heat on in the house my hands and feet are still cold. Usually that is a sign of poor circulation, which I have.. Have you been checked for that. I invested in a pair of down insulated leather mittens and my god it can snow out and my hands will be soooooooo warm. I put them on last night when it was freezing cold from the storm and i didn't feel anything, infact I'd be safe to say that my fingers were sweating a bit. U just have to find the right gloves/socks

So generally speaking it's normal for hands to feel like they're in ice-cream when it's in the 40's F for most people?

Today I noticed this but it wasn't quite cold enough for pain, which means my circulation has improved. They felt a little stiff but not terrbile. Before I first felt pain, then stiffness and more pain, then some numbness and pain.

Wartpman and dynimagelv, you are lucky as the temperatures you dislike are uncommon where you live.
Temps from 55-105 F suit me best, yet the warmest climates in my country have an annual average of only 50 F and where I live it's only 45 F.

I don't recall the last time my hands were so cold they felt they were covered in ice cream.

Just another reason I LOVE living in Florida.
