Snow, sleet, and freezing rain is right around the corner here in the Midwest so it’s time to get prepared. The winter of 2013-2014 was one of the coldest in the Twin Cities’ recent history, with an average winter temperature of only 9.7 degrees F, where the typical average is 18.7 degrees F. The minimum temperature on record in Minnesota is minus 60 degrees F, measured in St. Louis County on February 2, 1996.
Needless to say, Midwest winters can be tough on truck drivers and fleet vehicle operators, road conditions certainly aren’t ideal, but a well-maintained vehicle will help you stay safe on the road; Twin Cities Diesel is offering a deal you’ll want to know about.
