The Dead of Winter

Today marks the beginning of the “Dead of Winter”.

This old saying refers to the coldest, and often the harshest part, of the winter season. Traditionally, this period runs from January 10th through February 10th in the northern hemisphere.

The “Dead of Winter” is the climatological opposite of the “Dog Days of Summer“.
