On the road with a tow truck driverSubmitted: 01/22/2013

RHINELANDER - Most of us try to stay inside when the weather's like this, but we do have to get from home to work.

The problem is cars don't exactly love this weather, either.

That means big business for people like Josh Luce,who owns Dynamic Towing Company.

He said when it's cold...minor problems can turn into major problems.

"If your mechanic has told you that your battery is getting to the point where it needs to be changed, you'll find out that they were right in this weather," said Luce.

"Because it goes to your weak links."

But even people who are prepared can get stuck in the cold.

"Anytime people are leaving their cars running, you're more than likely to lock your keys in the your car. I've had quite a few of those in cold weather."

If you plan on warming your car up, be sure to have extra pair of keys.
