  • The depths of winter in Daventry, are extremely cold and frigid.[10] All food and supplies must be harvested before the end of summer, and early fall to ensure that people are safe through the winter.[11]
  • During more difficult times the castle workmen help the villagers prepare for winter.[12]
  • The snow, ice and frosts of winter in the Realm of Eldritch are melted by the spring warmth of Ceres, Lady of Spring.[13]
  • During the winter, there are rooms in Castle Daventry that are far too cold and drafty to live in, even with fireplaces and shutters. They closed and become dusty over the winter. In late spring the staff airs out the floors for the summer living.[14]

  • When Ahi'aorina was kidnapped in the late spring, an endless second renewed winter developed that year.[20] When she was finally freed she brought spring back to the world, there was no longer any trace of winter. By the time they reached the bottom of the Glass Mountains, summer birds were flying through the air.[21]
