October License Plates

| | Comments (4)

I never run out of things to blog about, but most of the things I want to blog about take more time than I have. So it's nice when I get an idea to blog about something stupid that takes very little time. All I have to do is keep track of which license plates I've seen during each month, and I get an easy post at the beginning of each month listing the license plates I saw the previous month. Maybe after a bunch of them, if I keep it up, I can actually do some statistics of what I tend to see.

So here are all the license plates I noticed during the month of October:

California (for some reason there are lots of these around Syracuse; I see a few every day; this wasn't true until this semester), Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois (another common one in our neighborhood), Indiana, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota (which I may never have seen before), Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Texas, Utah (not all that common around here, but at least two are in our general neighborhood), Virginia, Vermont, Washington (palso retty rare around here), West Virginia (also rare for me), District of Columbia (this is one I hardly ever see), Ontario

I saw one European-style plates also, but I have no idea what it was. It was on the front of a car with a U.S. state plate on the back, so it probably shouldn't count anyway.

This is without doing any serious traveling during October. When we travel, we usually see a lot more states and at least one other Canadian province. I expect December to be high. I've already got eleven for November, though, so it's off to a good start.


Jeremy, if you're keeping tabs like that, you need to see MY car. That'll add Manitoba to your list.

That probably is rare around here. I sometimes see New Brunswick or even Nova Scotia occasionally, and Quebec is pretty common around here. I don't know if I've ever seen a Manitoba plate.

License plates. Here I had stuff that took too much to write about and I just didn't write anything: why didn't I think about plates!

Oh wait, I'm not in NYC anymore. So all I'll see is tractors.

Tractors? Wow, you're really not in NYC anymore. I do see lots of license plates whenever we go to the city, but I see plenty in Syracuse. I'm already up to 23 states and one province for November!
