The City of Lynnwood, alongside its public works department, is hosting its snow plow-naming contest once more and now the finalists have been announced.
The snow plow in need of a new name is a 10-foot-long American Sno-Plow made of polymer moldboard and steel. It is mounted on the front end of the 2009 International Workstar.

The three finalist options are Clearapathra, Powasaurus Rex, and Sir Plows-A-Lot. You can vote for your favorite name here.
Some current snow plow names from previous contest winners include The Big Leplowski and Betty Whiteout. Snowbi Wan Kenobi and Plowy McPlowface — an offshoot of the internet-inspired Boaty McBoatface that won a popular vote for a British polar research ship — are some of the more recent winning names for Lynwood’s plows. There were 531 votes total.
Darth Blader, Blade Runner and David Plowie rounded out last year’s top five, falling short by approximately 50 votes.
