Michigan snowplows come in kinds of shapes and sizes.

The rule is, that the farther north you travel the bigger the blade.

I like how many of the snowplows have names like Alice Scooper, Betty Whiteout, Han Snowlo, Fast and Flurryous, Saltosaurus Rex, Ctrl Salt Delete, Jon Bon Snowi, Melton John, Snowprah Winfrey, Gordie Plow, Orange Yooper Storm Trooper, and many more. It shows the Michiganders and their plow drivers have a great sense of humor.

Michigan snowplow drivers are an elite group of individuals who are out on the roads clearing a path for the rest of us when no one should be on the road. So how do they stay so motivated while plowing? The music they plow too.

Recently the Michigan Department of Transportation posted this on its Facebook Page:

As you see in that first line they realize Van Halen isn't enough for the alleged bomb cyclone we are supposed to get and thought Rush might be a better fit perhaps because they are a Canadian band and we all know their country gets it worse than us. What I love about this post is the responses that were to follow:

Rush was not heavy enough, and the first post came from Shawn Brink who suggested Metallica. However, the response from the Department of Transportation said "We may be heading to DEFCON shortly: Metallica." That is good stuff right there. Bob Huddleston had a clever post as well that read, "At least the potholes are now filled."

Thanks to all Michigan snowplow drivers we appreciate you!
