Here it is the third of February and I’m only now getting around to posting the January license plate report. Excuses? (1) Big editing job was eating up all my writing time and energy. (2) Winter.
What kind of winter have we had? Well, if you’re on the island, or anywhere in New England, you know already. The author of my big editing job lives in Norway. The recent blizzard even made the news over there. Mystery writer and Vineyard blogger Cynthia Riggs, who lives a couple of miles up the road, had to cancel her annual Groundhog Day party for the first time in about 25 years because there was nowhere to park, not in the driveway, not in the back field, and not on the shoulder of the Edgartown Road, because the snow lay deep on all of it.
Anyway, the January haul was about par for the course: 19 states put in an appearance. None of them were as exciting as the Louisiana plate I spotted on January 2 of last year, but the West Coast is solid and we’ve even got some color in the Midwest.
