Disclaimer

is it normal for a cold/nasal congestion to cause snoring? apparently i was snoring loudly last night, and i do have considerable nasal congestion.

No: Many people get colds and nasal congestion without snoring. You may have a predisposition to snoring that is aggravated when mucous and congestion are present. See a doctor or ENT specialist for work up and treatment.
