I did several things this weekend which resulted in really really cold hands. First was a PSK firecraft test in which I intentionally allowed my hands to get cold as part of the exercise (working on thread now). The second was during a 5 mile night heavier pack run. holding the Al poles really hit them hard.

Can't even feel them here.

Not the first times I really had cold hands but kinda the first time I thought about it within a larger context. Naturally feelings and memories are subject to personal interpretations but here are the order of operations.

1. You feel they're a bit cold but snuff it off.

2. Darn cold out. Maybe I should do something about these hands. Nope.

3. Well it's not so bad.

4. Hold on.

5. Wow they're really really cold.

6. Painfully so and actually sting.

7 Getting numb.

8. You have to do something. I first curled my finders into the gloves.

9. No good. Maybe put them under the arms.

10. Time to blow on them.

11. They hurt and sting again.

12. But less so.

13. Still feel almost heavy and unresponsive but somehow better.

14. Hay they're better.

It seems like there is a fly wheel effect. The sudden extreme cold was actually building for some time then hits as if a critical mass was finally achieved. The same for the reverse. All of the sudden it gets better faster but really the positive changes like the negatives were building.

Well that's all.

If you're a guy just cup Natures Jewel Bag it works. It's the only part of the human body specifically designed primarily to dissipate heat. They are an external organ for a reason.
