"Speed the Plough" or "Ploughsie Maggie"

And for Shalespearians.....

"Gritter Love Hath no Man"

We have the artificial snow company on my doorstep. "Snow Business" and they re-named their building "Snow Mill", previous to that it was "Oil Mill", before that it would have been a weaving mill".

I looked on that map feature for Polmadie in Glasgow,
and there was Grittie MacVittie.

And Sparkle is over by the Glasgow airport.
And Frosty is near Kilwinning.
Sir Salter Scott, south of Edinborough.
Sprinkles is near Nairn.

What a hoot.

If a snowplough were mounted to the front of a UPS truck, it could be called "How Now, Brown Plough".

Yes, a white kitten. It seems there were other films but I only remember those two. A quick 'google' came up with this:

Eliza, did you only have "The potter's wheel"? I seem to remember a kitten playing with a ball of wool.

One FB friend suggested Gritty McGritface, and there is already Gritty McVittie. I had a look yesterday to see which one might be nearest us: it was Edinburh Ring Road, about 4 miles away, so "Ring-a Ring-a Road Clear" - or, for its more precise location "The Sighthill Spitter"!
And I think the weather forecast is "Ploughing Tonight".

Aw, that's sweet leeneia! We just had a man making a clay pot on a wheel in between programmes.
Trouble is, I think it's an ear worm...I can't stop singing it now!

They should paint one pink or white and name it Suzy Snowflake.

'Suzy Snowflake ' is a video that used to be on TV in the 1950's when the stations had a minute they didn't know what to do with. For me as a little kid, it was one of the few enjoyable things on TV.

Suzy

Or "We Plough The Snow and Scatter.." (the good grit on the roads...)

'He sends the snow in winter' - but I reckon He's overdone it this year!

We could also divert to a music thread. Anyone stuck in the snow could become jolly fellows who follow the plough :-)

I drove a snowplow at an orphanage in Wisconsin to earn my college tuition, and it was a job that was great for the machismo. I loved my snowplow and loved the experience of crashing into snowdrifts, but I never thought of naming it.
Sure was a fun job, though.

Scottish Transport has a map of where the gritter lorries are and it (apparently) reveals their nicknames or their licence plate.

These include Gritallica, Sir Andy Flurry, Gritty Gonzales and the Sir Salter Scott.

a Twatter on the subject
Offers suggestions like Brad Gritt, Salt Disney, Grittney Spears, Spready The Eagle, King Spreadward, GrittyGrittyBangBang, Snowfarah, Ready Spready Go.

& in Doncaster they have Davie Plowie & Gritsy Bitsy

True Grit - or do local Governments have a sense of humour?

What does the Mudcat suggest or has been observed?

Mine? Sleet of Foot, Dust my Vroom, the Drifters and not hilarious but a little subtle Cold Comfort
