? Vascular: It looks like a blood vessels problem, sensitive to temperature changes, on standing, blood gushes to lower part of the body so it becomes warmer, usually there is physiologic adaptation, which can be disrupted at times. In the cold weather, the tiny blood vessels in her toe shrunk limiting blood supply so that's why it looked grey, thermal underwear and socks might help, if not see your doctor
