Truckers and Holidays: "Michelin recognizes those in transportation who make the holidays memorable"

by Trucknews.com

GREENVILLE, S.C. – For the third year in a row, Michelin North America is recognizing the people in the transportation industry who work “like busy elves” behind the scenes to make the holidays memorable.
Michelin marks the season with its #KeepThanksMoving conversation in social and digital media and encourages people to share this appreciation via Facebook and Twitter.
“Making the holidays memorable takes a lot of people, a lot of energy and a lot of miles to get the food, presents, packages and people to their destinations. Getting ready for the holidays is always a busy time, and so many transportation professionals are responsible for making the holidays special. Most of these people operate vehicles — and not sleighs — in order to get this important work done so that all of us can enjoy this festive time,” said Ralph Dimenna, chief operating officer for Michelin Americas Truck Tires division. “Our hats are off to their dedication.”
Join Michelin in giving thanks to all of the dedicated people who deliver holiday happiness each year. A “Thank You” card can be downloaded from Michelinmedia.com to share your gratitude for these special individuals who drive the holidays home for all of us.

Winter weather - Wind Chill

ShipMyRide's team put together some information that can be very important for you this winter season. Looking at the temperature on our smart phones or on TV is one thing but the actual feeling on our skin and body on the outside can tell a different story. 
Besides the temperature you need to check the Wind Chill. The wind chill is how cold it actually feels on your skin when the cold wind is added to the low temperatures. On your mobile apps, or weather websites, they may refer to it as the "feels-like" temperature.
This phenomenon is caused because the wind actually strips away the thin layer of warm air above our skin. The stronger the wind, will result on a greater heat lost from our body, and the colder the sensation on our skin. When the winds are weaker or lighter, the temperature sensation will feel closer to the actual air temperature on our skin.

Stop in a safe dedicated place on the road or a truck stop and get some rest, or wait for the weather conditions to improve. If you can go on, slow down. Speed limits are often too fast for snow icy or snow co…
