    As much cold outside.

    "As much as cold it is outside as much hot it is inside."

    Please check.

    Re: As much cold outside.

    No. It's completely wrong. My best guess is that you're trying to say "It's as cold outside as it is hot inside". It's grammatical even if it's a highly unlikely scenario and doesn't really make practical sense.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: As much cold outside.

    It's as cold outside as it is hot inside.
    The sentence does not make any sense to me. How hot and how cold are they?

    Re: As much cold outside.

    The idea is that if it is very cold outside, then it is very warm inside.

    Re: As much cold outside.

    There is no indication at all as to the degree of hotness or coldness, so I think "very" is just an assumption.

    Re: As much cold outside.

    Think what you like. That is how I, a native speaker, have occasionally heard it used.

    Re: As much cold outside.

    The colder it is outside, the warmer it is inside.

    That has a different meaning, Matthew.
