Finish my last final and come outside to see this...



NOOOOOOOOOO.

Anyway, in all seriousness... it's times like these that I'm not jealous of the RWD guys. I've got horror stories about trying to get home from work during one of last years blizzards in my old 330ci.


***sorry for the giant picture

Haha yeah the blizzaks are great for snow, I was torn between them and the dunlops, but decided I would go with the dry handling of the dunlops since the roads around my area are usually cleared up pretty quick.
