While nothing ever truly withers or hibernates in the land of Malkavia, the sea does offer a frigid breath which chills and calms the terrain. Scarce are clouds swollen with rain, this season being the driest. Humidity tapers, river become shallow and more stagnant bodies of water shrivel. Some smaller aggregations of moisture vanish completely and the higher elevations become dusted with snow. While rare, it is not unheard of for a boisterous sea storm to gift the lower lands with a light pearly blanket.
