OMG, February is over! It’s practically a cliché to say that February, the shortest month, is actually the longest, but this year February really did seem to go on forever. It also seemed to exist in a slightly different dimension, as if the year took a detour before getting back on course.
There were cars on the snowy roads, however, and I scored four new plates: Wisconsin, North Carolina, Alabama, and Georgia. This is an average take for February. There’s more color in the Upper Midwest than usual, and Alabama was a pleasant surprise, but the East Coast tally is pretty true to form: Delaware and South Carolina are nearly always the last to show up. I’m sure I’ve spotted Ohio, but I didn’t write it down so I’ll have to catch it later.
