    Default cold as ice?

    Dear teachers,

    I've heard or read use of 'as', for example, in a sentence like this:

    The stone in her pocket felt cold as ice

    Shouldn't it "as cold as ice"? Because that's the way I know and would say it.

    Thank you.

    Yes, it should be "as cold as ice".
