Great question! Remember that "to be cold" is avoir froid in French, not "être froid." This applies to all tenses:

Elle a froid - She is cold.
Elle avait froid - She was cold.
Elle aurait eu froid - She would have been cold.
etc.

Parfait! J'ai oublié que avoir froid est la response juste. Merci. J'ai appris quelque chose aujourd'hui comme tous les jours que j'utilise Kwizbot.
