Well for those who are not familiar with what is towing and what tow trucks are, here is a small introduction. Towing is basically coupling your vehicle with another vehicle having power to drag your car by means of chain, rope, bar or hitch or any other way to some safer or desired location. Its basically an assistance for you and your damaged vehicle on the road.

You can tow your car to any vehicle having ability to drag your vehicle but there are always some risks attached to it. The best method is to use tow trucks which are designed primarily for moving your disabled, impounded and in some cases improperly parked vehicles. They are basically used for recovering purposes i.e to drive damaged vehicle in a serious accident to some safer drive-able surface or towing any vehicle by means of flat bed to some workshop or repair shop. Tow trucks are also referred as wreckers, recovery vehicles or a breakdown lorry.

There are some laws and regulations regarding towing of vehicles so one must also take them into account. But with tow trucks you have all the rights to take your vehicle to any desired place you want to. But the question now arises how to call a tow truck for help?

There are many private garages, workshops and business agencies which provide tow truck services on long stretched highways where there are no other means to tow a disabled car. You can call to any of these agencies to their toll free number providing them full information about your problem, you may be asked to fill a short form just as written in law and then you are ready to be able to tow your vehicle by means of a tow truck. Tow trucks are of many shapes and sizes, so be careful in explaining to the tow truck services providers your car condition, its size i.e length and width so that a requisite sized tow truck can reach for your help.

In some countries, the government and in some cases some military departments also provide tow truck facilities but there are some pre-requisites that should be met before using their services. First of all you can’t tow your own vehicle with those tow trucks as such facilities are not offered on individual basis, so it’s just not a choice for you. These services can be offered when there are some severe accidents on large highways having multiple cars damaged and stuck on the road not allowing free traffic flow, then government and military officials do come to help to eradicate the problem.

So for sure, this method is having countless benefits as one can easily have its car taken to some safer and drive-able surface in case of some really bad weather and some crisis in a more safer and sound way. Many travel agencies and business operating a large fleet of vehicles like owing free bus services to their employees have their own one or two tow trucks for towing their vehicles on self help basis. You can also contact to such agencies if you have a large contact lists for help in crisis situation.

The Snow Birds are Back

So now the desert Southwest gets to enjoy about 7 months of just spectacular weather. This is not going unnoticed by many people in the north. As a matter of fact this time of year when all of the landscapers are overseeding winter rye on all the Bermuda grass here in the desert the snowbirds tend to be walking in. No they’re not literal birds as you know but there are people who are in a position to enjoy the cooler climates up north during the summer and travel down here to the desert for the winter. The common saying is I’d rather shovel sunshine and snow. A lot of people feel that way rightly so.

This influx of temporary residence or seasonal residents certainly boost the economy this time of year. Many small businesses enjoy this fact and benefit greatly because of their spending habits while they are here. Houses may have been left vacant for some length of time. They may need some type of repair or refurbishment and many businesses take care of that for the homeowner.

There are an abundance of house sitters, home centers and pet sitters in the valley. They are needed resource for many who wish not to leave their home vacant while they are away. Conscientious and careful homeowners use the services to help ensure that their home is taken care of in their stead. Many people don’t know this but some insurance companies will cancel homeowners insurance if the house is left vacant for more than 60 days at a time. Having a home sitting company or house sitting company visit regularly while you are away can prevent this from occurring. You can see the disaster that could happen if that was to occur. Imagine having a home fire or something like that and thinking you’re insured in and out that your insurance was cancelled because of this. Not a good thing. Here is one company that does pet sitting and also provides house sitting services and does a great job at it.

It’s time to start planting your vegetables if you live in the desert southwest. Amazingly enough you can grow some pretty good tomatoes here if you plant them at the right time. Many nurseries have all of the necessary materials for you to do so I can help you with choosing a variety that you care to plant here.

If you have a Bermuda lawn it’s also time to scalp it and over seed that with winter rye let you can have a nice green lawn during your stay here in the cool weather here over the winter. Cool is a relative term but it’s definitely not cold here. You may need a light jacket to endure the winters in the desert Southwest valleys but you certainly don’t need any really warm coats. No need to bundle up to go in and out of the house or get in and out of the car. That is such a nice thing not having big jackets on and trying to get your seat belt on and off while climbing in and out of your car. Living here in the winter is really a special thing.
