January! Such a satisfying month. Especially satisfying after the five-month drought that ended 2012. Another year, a fresh start, a bumper crop of license plates.
I spotted 23 states during the first month of 2013. Not great, but not bad either. January’s map has an interesting shape:
Tennessee in the #2 spot! There it was at up-island Cronig’s on the 2nd or 3rd of the month. The New England states took their sweet time showing up. Usually they’re all in the top ten. This year only Massachusetts and Maine were in the top five; Vermont showed up 8th, Connecticut 11th, New Hampshire 15th, and Rhode Island — which, you’ll remember, is right next door to Massachusetts, was #20.
So what are y’all doing here this time of year?
