Unemployed until ...

I spotted these Shamrock snow plows on a cold evening all lined up, quiet and unemployed. But since then we have had snow blizzards so they aren't without work anymore!

  1. I think I'd prefer them standing silently, without snow on the ground or dipping temperatures.

  2. prêt a intervenir ;) j'espère qu'ils ne vont pas devenir fou comme dans le film de Stephen King "Maximum Overdrive" ;)

  3. Wish we had some in Edinburgh - they aren't even gritting the roads here much. All the bus drivers and taxi drivers are complaining like crazy.

  8. Very handy and useful to have them ready just in case. THey look very clean and well maintained. Or are they new?

  11. you have so many snow ploughs, so i guess there is usually a lot of work for them to do - we have snow ploughs located on higher ground where it does snow every now and then, but there is always one only in each area since we really don't get snowed in that often

  12. At least you are prepared over there. Here we get a few flakes and the place comes to a grinding halt!

  13. Oh dear! I'm so sorry they found work! ;-)

  14. With a name like "Shamrock", they'd have to be emerald green! (The Leipreacháns and all that)
    And yes, you were right, the Christmas window was from the story Olivia.
    Cheers.
