There is no snow on the ground yet. But rest assured, when there is, Plowy McPlowFace will clear the roads and ice.
Vermont Agency of Transportation gave school children the epic responsibility to name the state’s snow plows, which offered a competition – the Name a Plow program – that allowed children to create names for the plows before October 22nd.
The names were clever, creative and, yes, cute. VTrans posted a list of the 162 names for state snow plows on its official website. Since there are 250 snow plows used by the state, it leaves a lot left to be named. All 162 schools that named a plow were given a special visit by that truck so the kids could officially christen their named snow plow.
The idea to name snow plows comes from Scotland, where all the snow plows – nicknamed “gritters” there – have been given separate names.
Some of the best names, along with Plowy McPlowFace (Bridge School in Middlebury) included:
- William Scrape Spear (Ripton Homeschoolers)
- Edgar Allen Snow (Pacem School)
- Yo Bro, No Snow (Berlin Elementary School)
- Snowbegone Kenobi (Bishop John A. Marshall School)
- Sweeping Beauty (Warren Elementary School)
- Ole Bessy (Brookfield Elementary School)
- Snowy the Plow (Bennington Elementary)
- Frostbite (Barstow Memorial School)
- Spooky the Square Pumpkin (Bridport Central School)
- Dorito (Charleston Elementary School)
