“Names for our new snow blower came in like a blizzard in December – with nearly 900 suggestions made by Kelowna residents of all ages.

These are the candidates:
- Blizzard of Oz
- Snow Mercy
- Betty Whiteout
- Snowbe-gone Kenobi
- S’no Problem
- Buzz Iceclear
- Flurious George
- Blizzard Blaster
You have until 11:59 p.m. on Feb. 3 to cast your vote, the name with the most votes will win the contest.
“Don’t let this chance to shape our city’s future slide past you on the icy, uncleared road of time. Have your say,” said Andrew Schwerdtfeger roadways operations manager with the City of Kelowna.
The person who submitted the winning suggestion will also win get a “deluxe snow blower experience,” including a photo shoot and demonstration with the snow blower along with a Snow Angels prize pack. According to Schwerdtfeger, some of the snowblower names were suggested more than once and, in those instances, the first person who suggested the name will be selected as the winner.
