There are two ways to look at January.

“Dear world, I am excited to be alive in you, and I am thankful for another year.”
~ Charlotte Eriksson


“If I had my way, I would remove January from the calendar altogether and have an extra July instead.”
~ Ronald Dahl

Either way you prefer to look at it, January is here. We will celebrate it or cope with it and we have items on special  this month to make your January more comfortable.

Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF)

If you drive a diesel, Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) is on sale this month in our automotive department. It’s a non-hazardous solution, when sprayed into the exhaust stream of diesel vehicles breaks down dangerous NOx emissions into harmless nitrogen and water. This system is called Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) and can be found on 2010 and later model year trucks and many diesel pickups and SUVs. DEF is not a fuel additive and never comes into contact with diesel. It is stored in a separate tank, typically with a blue filler cap.

While we are wrapped in winter’s dark shadow, take time for rest, relaxation, and reflection. And nature puts on a show for anyone willing to brave the cold. The stillness of the frozen air heightens each of the senses, making the little details of a glimmering blanket of snow or a cardinal’s song even more inspiring. Rejoice! It’s a new year of your life.
