Most truckers like it when there’s mild weather in the winter. Not so for the “Ice Road Truckers.”
An El Nino has caused a mild winter, which in turn has caused mushy roads and dangerous crossings over mostly frozen lakes. Here’s the History Channel’s preview of the episode that airs at tonight at 10 Eastern, 9 Central:
“As a short season looms, the drivers are up against it. Hundreds of miles from the nearest town, Lisa Kelly finds herself stranded. Darrell Ward rolls the dice by taking an off-road short cut, untested by any other truck. Art Burke squares off with a melting ice crossing and a load that’s right at the weight limit. And twenty-two year-old Steph Custance finds out whether she’ll be joining the Polar team.”
