April License Plate Report

2015 apr license plate

Once the snow melted, the traffic started moving again. April was a pretty good month. Delaware and South Carolina — as usual the East Coast’s last holdouts — both showed up. The Upper Midwest is filling in nicely.

This year’s Tennessee was on Béla Fleck and Abigail Washburn’s gorgeous touring bus, which was parked outside the high school when I and 600+ other Vineyard people went to their April 15 concert at the Performing Arts Center.

When I biked into the parking lot at up-island Cronig’s the other day, with Travvy on the Springer beside me, I spotted something interesting. I made a sharp right turn to check it out, nearly running Travvy over in the process. It was Louisiana. Totally worth it, though Trav was a little miffed.

    I bet Bela Fleck and Abigail Washburn were amazing. Even better to get a Louisiana plate from the visit!


    • They were — and I’ve been listening to their new CD ever since. It’s pretty amazing too, but “live” is something else. Funny thing: My town’s annual town meeting was continued for a second night, which happened to coincide with the concert. Town meeting didn’t get a quorum — probably because so many good citizens were at the concert. (We finished up the warrant this past Tuesday.)
