I have a question about the meaning of "deep" here:

We are about to be confronted with the dangers of deep winter.

What does "deep" refer to? Does it mean the later part of winter?

1 Answer 1


It means the most intense part. In some cases (depending on the climate), that could be the later part of winter.
