Snow plows are my best friend. I hate the feeling of not being able to go anywhere (even if I don’t plan to go anywhere, haha), so when I see the snowplow come through my neighborhood, I could literally run outside and kiss it. Although that would result in frozen lips!

MDOT has released its list of snowplows with the coolest name, picked from more than 15,000 public submissions.

  • Alice Scooper

    One of the snow plows is actually named Alice Scooper! That plow is based in the North Region of Michigan.

  • Austin Plowers, Snowprah Winfrey...

    Some of the other cool names include Austin Plowers, Snowprah Winfrey, The Big LePlowski, Sleetwood Mac, Jon Bon Snowi and Lake Scooperior. Love it!
