No, viruses cause colds, not cold weather, or wet hair, or any other old wive's tale. We tend to get colds in the winter because we are cooped up inside with recirculating air. Also, humidity levels are lower in the winter which causes your nostrils to dry out and be more susceptable to infection. Wash your hands, get plenty of fresh air, and use a humidifier to prevent colds.

I believe it is hace mucho frio fuera, if you are refering to the outside rather that indoors.

Turtles are reptiles, therefore they require heat. They could survive cold weather indoors in a 24-hour heated room but they would not survive outside in the cold.

Yes, cold temperatures will lower the pressure inside the ball causing it to be less bouncy when playing outdoors. Of course, if you are playing indoors in a heated area, the cold weather outside will have no effect on the ball.

A good experiment to try, when it's really cold outside, is to buy a bottle of bubbles. Blow the bubbles outside and see what happens to them.

No because they cannot tolerate frost and must be grown indoors during cold weather.

An aloe plant is mostly water and cold weather will cause cellular damage on the leaves if below 45 degrees or frost. When the weather drops to this temperature, return the plants indoors and in the spring, back outside again.

Normally the cold weather will do you no harm if you are properly dressed for it. Otherwise you may suffer from hypothermia. Smoking will harm your health regardless of whether you do it indoors or outdoors.

The main benefits of treadmills are that they allow you to run indoors and get aerobic exercise. They can also be used indoors when it may be raining, cold, or snowing outside.

It depends on the dog, and how long it is outside. A dog that has a thin coat of fur and is otherwise not made for cold weather will be effected much more than a dog with a thick fur coat and bred to withstand the cold (such as a Husky). A dog, without proper shelter and warmth from cold weather can become sick.

That is when you usually catch cold, during cold weather. The body's metabolism is geared toward warmth and the immune system may be lower. At the same time, you are exposed to more airborne viruses because more people spend more time indoors, and because the air is not as frequently exchanged for outside air.

When a child has a cough, they should stay out of the cold weather. You wouldn't want them to get sicker than they already are.
