A snowy day with a towing company


BISMARCK, ND (KFYR) — While many people stayed home due to work and school cancellations, Ace’s 24-hour towing was still in operation.

Mark Adolf with Ace’s Towing had packed up his wetsuits and was preparing to shift his work to more spring and summer activities. But this week’s blizzard put it back into winter action.

“Ah, this is my sixth call,” said Adolf, manager at Ace’s Towing.

“Is it more or less than you expected? »

“Less, much less,” he added.

He attributes the lack of action in the morning to early warnings about the severity of the storm and that school was canceled well in advance. This took drivers off the roads for the first few trips. But at the end of the afternoon, it was another story. Ace’s Towing received about 60 calls at 3:30 p.m. And Adolf doesn’t expect him to slow down anytime soon.

“I think it will probably pick up tomorrow… so more people will be away I think. They had enough notice to stay home today. You can just say there’s really no one driving today,” Adolf added.

As the storm lingers for a few more days, his advice echoes that of many other agencies: stay home if you don’t need to go out and if you’re driving slowly.

If you find yourself in the ditch, call them at 701-258-0451. They are available 24 hours a day.
