    Cool hours off

    Given this sentence:

    Why can't the meeting wait until dawn, though that's hours off since it's winter

    My problem is at "that's hours off since it's winter"

    Is it saying: "despite the fact those are inactive hours because we are in winter"?

    Thank You

    No, it's saying that dawn is hours away, in other words it will be several hours before dawn, as it is winter.
