March License Plate Report

The best March ever in my license plate game has made up for the worst January ever. Twelve new sightings in March! Today, the year-to-date total stands at 27, one ahead of a year ago’s tally and exactly the same as the year’s before that.

Spotted in March were, in order, Florida, Pennsylvania, Idaho, Delaware, Georgia, South Carolina, Wisconsin, Maryland, Colorado, Michigan, Washington, and Ohio. I’ve actually seen a second Delaware, which is usually the most elusive of the East Coast states, and I must have missed a few Marylands before March, because Maryland never really goes away.

  1. Not too shabby since we are still very early in the season. Could be one where the map is filled, right?


  2. Colorado wasn’t me but your blog makes me wish it had been! Must be getting beautiful over there!

    Plenty of travelers to Maine. What does the green mean in West Virginia and North Carolina? Two of my favorite states.


    • This year I’m using different colors for different months, and West Virginia and North Carolina both showed up in February. 🙂 At present I don’t have enough colored pencils to do the whole year, so I’ve got to either buy some more pencils or start reusing the colors I’ve got. Decisions, decisions . . .

        Got it! If might be easier to opt for more colored pencils. You won’t have to keep track of using the same color twice.


      • I’ve got to hit the office supply store soon. I like the idea of using a different color for each month. There are usually a few months toward the end of the year when no new plates show up, so I probably only need eight colors total.
