Thread Name: BS: on the naming of Snowploughs
Subject: RE: BS: on the naming of Snowploughs
As a natural-born Canadian who has lived most of her life in high-snow areas, I love the idea of naming snowplows (note variant spelling -- in these parts, ploughs are for soil). I have never heard that any Canadian jurisdiction indulged in the practice, however.
Could it be that we have just too many snowplows? Like feedlot steers, identified only by the code on their eartags, Canadian snowplows have to get by on their licence plate numbers.
