The Charming Snowplows of Scotland

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. Traffic Scotland has a Gritter Tracker where you can follow the activities of the snowplows across the country. Many of them have fabulous names, often bestowed by local schoolchildren.
