I LOVE the names the schoolchildren of Scotland came up with for their “Gritters!” What should our Halifax snowplows be called?



Scotland is now dealing with their deepest snow since 2011, up to ten inches in places. To clear the roads, the nation has an armada of snowplows they call gritters. And the country has a Gritter Tracker where anyone can follow the activities of the snowplows across the country. Many of them have great names, often given to them by local schoolchildren.
