This is a reminder that Scottish 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 snow plows have all the best names, and can be tracked live here:

I mean...

GRITNEY SPEARS
BLIZZARD OF OZ
SALT DISNEY
SNOW CONNERY
BEAR CHILLS
WILLIAM WALL-ICE

@rysiek When the names first started getting around that was one of them

@cadadr I vaguely remember there used to be a PLOWY MCPLOWFACE, but that was a long while ago.

It did make me laugh out loud though.

@rysiek There's a few that's only visible when you zoom in, eg LICENCE TO CHILL is around bottom right, and if you zoom in there's also I WANT TO BREAK FREEZE near it :blobcatgiggle:

@rysiek Doncaster has David Plowie and Gritsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Anti-Slip Machiney

@rysiek
William Wall-Ice is my favourite of that list. :D

@baykanguru
don't believe in peter pan or superman, all I want to do is
Icicle, Icicle, Icicle race!
@rysiek

@rysiek

@rysiek

PLOUGHER O'SCOTLAND

@rysiek
This is a reminder that in Scotland it is spelt "plough". Plow looks weird, to me. 😃

Looking forward to Snowlar Bear or Rumble coming my way soon.

@fitheach apologies. So it was also Ploughie McPloughface, of course.

@rysiek
Yes, of course.
The good old days when boats were given sensible names like Boaty McBoatface.

@rysiek oh they do that where I live and it is so cool! Wish I could remember off the top of my head what some of the best ones were from last year. I just remembered they were amazing.

@rysiek I love this toot over and over every single year. Thank you for reminding me (again).
