Did you know?

Fern-hunting parties became popular, allowing young women to get outside in a seemingly innocuous pursuit with less rigid oversight and chaperoning than they saw in parlors and drawing rooms. They may have even had the occasional romantic meetup with a similarly fern-impassioned beau. — Bree

Now that he had walked up to them, he couldn't exactly whirl around and get going. That would be rude. And was not, presumably, how straight men seduced their future wives.

Fog in Irvingly
See the Strange Sight!

Yesterday mid-morning, Irvingly residents awoke to find Salem Square encompassed by a thick, dry fog that smelled of dust. The fog is definitely magical rather than natural, and Magical Accidents & Catastrophes has been dispatched to observe the fog, but at this time is advising residents that it does not seem to be dangerous.

This has led some citizens to lead 'fog tours,' and competing to see how well they can navigate Salem Square without being able to see more than a few feet in front of them. Otherwise, business as usual continues in Irvingly.

When asked about the fog excursions, Miss Zelda Fisk stated, "I mean, we don't advise it as we're still not sure what's causing the fog, but everyone seems fine."

Due to the fog's seeming disruption of the floo connection to the Irvingly Casino, Ministry employees have been flooing into and out of private homes in Swallowbury District.

The fog did not abate this morning, nor were Irvingly authorities or the Ministry able to release an estimate on when it would. Magical Accidents & Catastrophes seems to believe that it will abate on its own, and are observing the policy of no magic in Irvingly until further notice.
