It’s day 5 of the blizzard that has over taken Hogwarts and it still doesn’t seem to be letting up anytime soon. Because of this, the courtyards and school grounds are piled high with snow and it is FREEZING out. Now, there are so many ways you can stay warm for the winter, and even get through this snow or around this snow!
So, let’s name them!:
Second Floor Corridor:
There are several passages you can take to navigate around Hogwarts and your best friend will be the second floor hallway. It’s mainly a bathroom hallway but connects the castle with the Viaduct. This hallway is essential for staying warm and hiding from the blizzard blues.
A Few Useful Spells:
There are several spells you can use to navigate through the snow. Now, a few students used bombarda the other day, and though fun, it’s quiet dangerous. Fervens Aeris is useful for melting out the snow as well as drying yourself off when you leave, though, mighty useful! For those talented with Transfigurations (and at least fifth year), try Evanesco to remove clumps of snow in your way. There are so may others you can use, but make sure you stay safe! We do not need a blown up school!
The hospital wing always carries pepper up potion. Great for those who are getting sick or who’ve been outside for far too long. Taking a swig of pepper up keeps you nice and toasty inside out. so much so, that you’ll start steaming from your ears! I bet that steam is great for those completely congested and needing a bit of that hot air!
We at the Owl Post want to make sure you stay warm! Though you have to comply with these rules when in uniform, after 2 and on the weekends, bundle up! wear comfy flat boots, pants, jackets, scarves, anything to stay warm. Layering is great at this time, and exposed skin will get you sick!
As a final note, The headmistress has called for help to remove this snow! If you are an able bodied student and can perform the task, even if it’s shoveling by hand, snowball fighting it out of the way, using spells to clear it out, do it! We want to be able to see our beautiful castle again! ((an ooc note, send rp chat of clearing off this snow to the headmistress to show your hard work!)
