Humid cold.

People always think I am crazy when I say it, but 40 degrees F in south eastern Texas feels colder than the 30s in Indiana or the 20s in Utah. The cold humidity goes straight to your bones.

It does get humid here in winter, but I associate it with warmth.

Dry air is what I associate with cold.

My cousins came over from Winnipeg when it was -30c. Temp maxed out at 2c here with set snow and heavy wind, they were all wrapped up saying it was much colder than Winnipeg lol.

The same said to me a Moscower that he lives in Serres. He feels that in Greece the cold is different from Russia and he wears the same clothing in Serres that he wears in Moscow. And of course I couldn 't understand what he means. Because that night was a mild winter night with 7 C.

I've heard the same nonsense from a Canadian and a Russian who are living here.

I pointed out that the coldest dampest winter conditions here, would be typical of mid spring where they were from, and asked if their mid spring felt colder than mid winter. No was the answer. Can't figure that one out.

Yes we all know that Russia and Canada are very cold countries and in the whole winter they have temperatures below freezing and charts in wikipedia shows that some cities from that countries have also high humidity. Why they say that other cities feel colder with higher humidity than them?

I think you're missing the point. They're were saying that my winter climate felt as colder or even colder than their winters due to humidity. But if my winter is warmer and drier than their mid spring, why don't they think their mid spring feels colder than their winter?
