Sorry for delay — I’ve had a bunch of deadlines, one of which is still staring me in the face. Only two new sightings in June, both good ones: Indiana and Idaho. (If the I’s have it, can Iowa be far behind?)
The elusiveness of Washington state is perplexing. Usually the West Coast fills in by the end of February — I mean, hey, the West Coast comprises only three states while the East Coast has fourteen. (Speaking of which, I just noticed Delaware is still AWOL. WTF??)
I’m pretty sure the low license plate count is due to reduced summer traffic rather than my not being out much. In June I attended two Black Lives Matter events, both of which involved time on the road. One of them included a three-mile trek from Vineyard Haven to Oak Bluffs on a Friday afternoon, during which I saw lots of license plates, but nothing I hadn’t seen before.
“Reduced summer traffic” doesn’t mean no summer traffic, however. There are still a lot more people here than there were in May, even though none of the big-crowd events are happening this year.
