This time of the year everyone has to keep an eye on the weather. You don’t have to be a hermit to know that this year is starting out quite a bit cooler than the past three or four years. In fact, I think it has caught a few people off guard. I watch the weather and see how cold it is up north in places like Alberta, Canada, North Dakota and Montana. Not to mention the windy city, Chicago, where the wind is like a giant Razor Blade coming down the street, and think about New York and New England!
I look back on my trucking days and remember all those cold places that I dreaded going to, but you have to remember. It comes with the job. A Driver has to Be Prepared. Making sure you have plenty of fuel additive for fuel, alcohol for your air system, extra fuel filters, and warm clothes in case you have to get out and make some quick repairs. I understand trucks are a lot better equipped now than they were before, with air dryers, fuel tank heaters, and satellite systems so you can get a hold of your company if you get stranded, but it’s probably a good idea to keep an eye on all this especially when the temperature gets below ZERO.
Any of those drivers from Canada and further north will tell you it’s a must have to carry good winter clothing with you. That’s why I wanted to talk, a little, about Caterpillar Clothes. Few people know how well-made their Coats, Gloves, and Boots are. CLICK HERE for some good prices on Cat Footwear and Clothing!!

In looking thru all the reviews I think I could only find one bad one and it was three stars. Didn’t read it all through, but it was about some bad stitching a customer had. All the reviews I read were four and five stars out of more than 100. They ranged anywhere from a great fit, heavy-duty, a high-quality product, and the fact there are plenty of pockets. Pockets on the inside for a phone, tablets, or any other things you can think of. Another customer stated they had never worn a Coat this warm, great at blocking the wind, and it fits like it was tailored.
After twenty-seven years of trucking all over the US and Canada, I understand what it’s like to be outside when the temperature is below zero. It can be brutal and even life threating if you have to get out in severe cold temperatures. I have seen many drivers come north and not be prepared for the cold, a windbreaker and cowboy boots ain’t gonna cut it, that’s why I recommend Caterpillar Parkas, Coats, and Boots. Thanks for reading my review. LOOK forward to hearing from you!! Please Comment Below!! Wayne
