While the rest of Columbia huddles indoors, resident Chad Slate heads out to help residents in need of a tow. Slate, who owns his own towing company, I-70 Towing and Recovery, services mid-Missouri 24 hours a day. Slate started towing cars over 20 years ago when he was 16 . He said he enjoys the strategy that recovering a vehicle can demand.
"It can be a puzzle sometimes," he said. "I enjoy that because it's challenging."
