Who would you call for your snow removal needs? This Christmas has been a treat, because not only do we have a chance to earn Mr. Plow for free, but we also get a chance to earn a free Plow King costume for Barney.
Unfortunately a costume is only good if you have the character to wear it, so maybe Mr. Plow has cornered the snow removal market in your Springfield. It is certainly the case in my town, as I have no interest in spending 250 on Barney’s Bowlarama.
Still, it’s nice that he left his plow behind. Of all the vehicles that you place on the road, the Plow King’s Plow is one of my favorites. Homer should think about using that plow for himself, especially after everything Barney did to him in the Plow King storyline. Though Homer did blow-up an entire town, which inadvertently took out his only business competition. Still, at least he didn’t do it maliciously, so my vote goes to Mr. Plow.
On the other hand, who needs either of them when we can just wait for a future app update to remove all of the snow for us? It mimics my preferred snow removal strategy: waiting for warmer weather.

Last winter, Mr Plow was added to the game (for 90 donuts) so it was only a matter of time before a Plow King costume for Barney was created. You can’t buy this costume though, you have to earn it as one of the prizes on the Holiday Wheel. Though it does seem to make it appear you will have to win the Mr. Plow costume first.
So what happens if you don’t have Barney and you win the costume? It may just stay in your inventory, should you ever decide to purchase the Bowlarama. There is a possibility of that you can acquire him after unlocking the Plow King’s Plow, but that is only speculation.
Unlocking the Plow King costume sets off a five-part quest line, which you can follow along with in both abridged and unabridged form. It’s a bit odd how he only monologues to himself in this quest line. Perhaps the whole experience are just the inner-thoughts of a man who has been drinking too much alcohol.
