September License Plate Report

No news is not exactly good news, but it’s all I’ve got. Nothing new for September. A few relatively rare plates staged repeat appearances, like Louisiana and Kentucky, and one morning in West Tisbury center I got all excited by a colorful plate I’d never seen before. I reversed direction once at town hall and again at Alley’s so I could take another look.

Delaware. On one hand this was disappointing, because Delaware was already colored in on my map, but on the other it was interesting because I’d never seen a Delaware variation before. Delaware’s standard plate is classic, stolid, distinctive — easy to recognize at a distance.

Turns out Delaware has other variations, but the one I saw was a fundraiser for agricultural farmland preservation. Given that this was Saturday morning, I bet the driver was at the farmers’ market.

At the end of September, the map looked just like it did at the end of August.
