MDOT Wants You To Help Name Their Snowplows
I'm sorry to inform you, but "Sir Salts-A-Lot" has already been taken.
The Michigan Department of Transportation is taking a cue from Scotland, and will name their snow plows so that you can track them better online at M Drive, the site that allows to find out where the plows have been.
Ellen Bacca over at WOOD-TV 8 tweeted a look at some of the Scottish names you can steal, if you want to, but I prefer to come up with my own.
You can submit your snow plow names here.
Here's a few of my ideas:
- Grit Rapids
- Beet It (they use beet juice now to de-ice)
- The Jenison Juicer
- Michigan-Ice (You know, a play on "Michigan Nice", no? Okay, fine.)
- Gordie Plowe (after good old number nine)
- Squall Bunyan or Plow Bunyan
- Gerald R. Frost
- Gerald R. Flurry
- Gerald R. Snowboard
- Spready Mercury
- Forest Chills
- Scraper Joe
