I don't think that is an expression. But, when there is lots of snow and a clear skies, you get some blue shadows at dusk. I find you see them most often when the shadow is from something in front of electric light. I think it's the dark blue of the sky that does it. It doesn't last very long and it isn't very obvious.

We have 35F right now. We're expecting anywhere from 5-10" of snow tomorrow afternoon and into Wednesday. That will close us down through Thursday. Friday is supposed to be close to 50, so it will all disappear.

Saw this list of the coldest U.S. cities online today. Read it and weep - but only inside, or your face might freeze like that!

America's 20 Coldest Major Cities - weather.com


I would l like to know what that site considers sub zero temperatures vs. sub freezing? 32F. and below is freezing.

Addie, sub-zero temperatures are just that...a Fahrenheit reading below zero. Seeing how Boston gets only one below-zero day a every year or every-other year you aren't familiar with them. We used to live basically between Cleveland and Akron; they are both listed at averaging 3 to 4 below-zero days a winter. It was really exciting that one night in January 2000 when the low of the night was -18...and our gas furnace was not working! Our builder did put a heat pump in instead of an air conditioner, so we did have that. Unfortunately, heat pumps lose their ability to heat efficiently somewhere around 32 degrees. It was a brisk 50 degrees when we woke up on Monday, more than happy to see the furnace repairman at my door at 8:00 AM!

I know that. But the site you showed for the coldest cities, all stated their sub zero temps. vs. sub freezing temps. What's the difference? Anything below 32F. is freezing. No matter what you call it.
