So, I spend an inordinate amount of time sitting in gridlock in the Seattle-area. And since I have so much time on my hands, I began an informal survey of license plates to answer the big question: Where did all these people COME from?
They came from: Louisiana, Kansas, Nevada, Missouri, Alaska, Oregon, Arizona, Wisconsin, Illinois, Colorado, Minnesota, North Carolina, Florida, California, Idaho, Maryland, New Mexico, Georgia, Texas, Pennsylvania, Hawaii, Maine, New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, South Carolina, Delaware, Kansas, Michigan, Tennessee, Indiana, Utah, Oklahoma, Kentucky, North Dakota, South Dakota, Ohio, Montana, Wyoming, Nebraska, New Jersey, Iowa, Arkansas, Mississippi, Vermont, New Hampshire, Virginia, Michigan, Mexico, the European Union (!), and British Columbia & Ontario.
Folks, that’s 47 states, and 3 countries.
No wonder the traffic is so bad!
