What is the Meaning of the Expression
FREEZE TO DEATH?
This expression is often used to describe (in an exaggerated way) how you feel in extreme cold.
The only part of the wording of the expression that you may change is the tense of the verb.
1. It’s so cold outside today; I nearly froze to death!
2. Can you come soon? I am waiting outside and I’m freezing to death!
Maybe you are wondering, “Is it possible to really freeze to death?”
The answer is “yes!” People living in areas where the temperature gets very cold must learn how to protect themselves in extreme weather, and plan ahead for unexpected emergencies such as car trouble.
