Blowing snow is a daunting challenge for big rig drivers

Navigating treacherous conditions where the road vanishes into the abyss and blowing snow obscures the way is a daunting challenge for big rig drivers. In these extreme circumstances, it’s a true testament to their skills that more trucks don’t find themselves in the ditch.

When temperatures plummet below -30 degrees, the perils of ending up in the ditch intensify, regardless of whether it’s day or night. This predicament poses a unique set of challenges not only for the stranded rig driver but also for the tow truck operators. Working in frigid temperatures, surrounded by thousands of pounds of frozen steel, demands a delicate balance between staying warm and ensuring safety.

Given that the human body is primarily composed of water, and water freezes at -32 degrees Celsius, finding oneself stuck in the ditch on a bone-chilling -40 degree night transforms the situation into a rescue mission rather than a routine tow.

Big Rig Towing specializes in handling various recovery and towing scenarios. If you encounter a precarious situation requiring a heavy lifting solution, don’t hesitate to contact us at 1 (866) 398-7444. Our 24/7 dispatch service ensures that assistance is just a call away, providing reliable support in even the most challenging conditions.
