    What words would YOU use to describe the dead of winter without using the actual phrase?

    A frigid space in time where life can  be halted by the sheer powerful force of nature.

      Beautiful and awesome statement.  You should write a hub on this, seriously.  You have a wonderful poetic way with words.  I LOVE that!

    It happens every year in the USA somewhere between the months of December and March.  The weather will get extremely cold during this time frame...although the white snow everywhere makes it very beautiful as well. Dressing appropriately ( heavy sweaters,over coats, boots, scarves, gloves etc) is a must in order to protect the body from getting too cold. Some people may end up with the flew during this time.  Driving your car is sometimes an impossibility because of the heavy snow.  The snow is very beautiful, but could cause a lot of harm sometimes.  On many days children are unable to attend school, and businesses may even shut down for a while because of hazardous blizzards.

    Cold . . . snow . . . lack of sun . . . enforced stillness . . . I repeat Shelley's mantra daily: "If Winter comes, can Spring be far behind?"

    cold, bleak, dreary, suffocating, stifling, can't wait 'til spring!

    Fall is long past, the dead leaves on the ground covered in depths of snow. Spring is yet a hope to come with warmer temperatures and melting snows.Tree branches and bushes are held captive in frozen splendor while frost creates dazzling patterns on window panes. Clouds form and drop low and gray while fog hangs over rivers and ponds and snow flakes drift from the heavens in myriad forms to cover the landscape in a blanket of white.
