There’s been no SnowPocalypse in Pugetopolis this year. But don’t get too comfy with the idea of dry(ish) sunny Januaries. In fact, you might want to view this educational video from BMW — how to glide gracefully across the frozen wastes in your BMW X5M — where do I sign up?

This little giggle — for the job seekers out there. A new and very efficient pre-screening technique for engineers.
keep calm and carry on
