October & November License Plate Report

If you guessed from the absence of an October report that there were no new sightings that month, you would be right. And as September and October went, so went November. October’s most noteworthy event came near the end of … Continue reading

September License Plate Report

Nothing to report except there’s nothing to report. No last-minute sightings, no nothing. It’s disappointing for sure, but hey, we’re talking about September, Covid limitations are still in effect (I don’t see any license plates on my way to a … Continue reading

July License Plate Report

Three western states showed up in July — a pretty good catch. New Mexico got in just under the wire: I spotted it at up-island Cronig’s yesterday. Earlier in the month, Nevada was just leaving downtown Vineyard Haven as I … Continue reading

The map at the very end of 2020 looked exactly as it did at the end of October. Missing were West Virginia, Oklahoma, Utah, Wyoming, and (surprise, surprise) both Dakotas. This isn’t bad for a year-end tally. In fact, it’s … Continue reading
