Capital District... no way.. me too! I live just a few miles south of Alb myself and work downtown.
1hr of work @NYS Min Wage 7.25 = 725 Zen
725 x 102 (or current exchange rate) DL = 73950 DL <- can you earn that per hour in game?

On behalf of the UK, I would respectfully request that the snow stays on the other side of the Atlantic. Thank You.

It's cold as an ugly old enchantress' mammary gland appendage here though...

Currently 18* with occasional wind gusts up to 30 mph.

Expecting 0* to -10* tonight...

Where's that bottle of Kahlua.
Enchantress you say?

Hehe... yeah make sure to bundle properly. I like to wear a sweat suit under my regular clothes in sub-zero weather.... and insulated snowboots.

Please do not risk injury unless it is crucial. I almost lost my leg because snow packed onto it as I was digging to get to my elderly neighbor so in case of emergency she can get out.

Have some Hot Coco, or some nice bold coffee, hell earl grey is a damn good tea for sitting back.

wait til the winds die down and plows have managed to get through.


Good Luck and stay safe!.

I grew up in the north, with winter the bigger part of the year. Now that I live in a warmer place and see people here getting almost helpless when it's cold and snowing I feel like a true viking.

But yeah, stay inside and drink lots of hot coffee and play STO!

I know the feeling. When I lived in colorado, I once walked to the grocery store in a blizzard. It's fun going "wuss" when you see people acting like they're gonna die just because it's 30f(-1c) outside.

Was saddened to hear a young boy died from asphyxiation due to being in a vehicle that had it's exhaust covered by snow while his father was outside shoveling.

Also, those using space heaters, over-tasked electrical cords and candles...

Be mindful and safe!
