October License Plate Report

201610-oct-license-platesFall is never great for license-plate spotting. The hard-to-find states are even harder to find when the island population drops. However, in the course of a day it seems that all the world passes through Five Corners, Vineyard Haven. Virtually every vehicle going to or from the ferry dock, which is literally a stone’s throw away (as in, even I can throw a stone that far), has to navigate Five Corners. Ditto all traffic between Vineyard Haven and Oak Bluffs.

So it’s not all that surprising that I spotted Montana while standing at Five Corners in mid-October, holding a sign at the stand-out supporting Democratic candidates on the general election ballot.  As years go, 2016 has not been outstanding, but Montana two years in a row is worth noting. Not to mention — there are more reasons than one to get out and support the candidate(s) of your choice.
