  1. 30 seconds for the anagrams, like yesterday and elapsed time 1:31. This has been a lazy crazy week!
    No issues lead to no tissues.
    IM enjoying this period but I know change will come…..

  2. Good Morning, Everyone. ☃️ IT’S FLAKE NEWS! ☃️

    🎶 When I’m down, you’re always there just to see me through…You understand everything that I do…It’s NOT A WONDER that I care for you…🎶 “It’s Not a Wonder – Little River Band 1979 https://tinyurl.com/2vz2ppmd

    ☃️ We see the snow, MOUND after mound, the family’s having fun,
    They’re getting SWEATY in the snow, before the next storm comes…
    We can’t see all the WILLOW trees, but they’re covered in snow,
    Those leafless branches? Hoping they don’t break and power blow…
    Forecasters knew, predictions SWORN, and this couple took heed,
    They’re well prepared and can relax…they’ve bought all that they’ll need
    But anyone who didn’t shop?…Well they def did a’blunder…
    ‘Cause now they’re stuck…no milk, no bread…of course…it WAS “SNOW” WONDER! ☃️

    Snow…considering that these puzzles are submitted about 5-6 weeks before publication, I’d say David came pretty close with his predicted snowfall…But thank God it looks like the major snowstorms of the season have come and gone for most of us…so we can breathe a sigh of relief…

    With no new words to bury us, todays anagrams are pretty light and fluffy…and I did dig up NUDMO from the Archives…circa 2016. And with that being said…let’s shovel off to Buffalo and see what’s at flake with our cartoon…

    Today we see a family of four, frolicking and having a friendly, fabulous foray in the frigid confines of their backyard, after a major snowfall…Kids with fists full of snow in the midst of a snowball fight, and parents putting the finishing flourishes on Frosty the Snowman. (Ah, alliteration)…And from the dialogue between our couple, it’s easy to see that the storm came as no surprise…that they had plenty of time to accumulate all that they needed. So now, they’re able to just enjoy their time together…Bottom line? That four letter word in quotes? There’s SNOW way you could miss that one…Total accumulation? …It WAS “SNOW” WONDER! https://tinyurl.com/jh5pcv8u

    Jeff’s Gems? The cartoon definitely put me in mind of the one we saw in December… https://tinyurl.com/twm4jb9y but that day we didn’t have a Snowman. And with the Snowman, we get the carrot. Yep, Jeff NOSE when to add that final touch!

    So, There you have it Folks, Done. Have a good one…Be well, stay safe, and here’s hoping that if we do get another storm, that we’ll all enjoy a home sleet home…☃️🙋🏻‍♀️

  3. Good morning. Another successful day. No problem with the words or cartoon answer. I keep waiting for the hammer to fall. Maybe tomorrow because it’s really been a very easy week so far. And I ran out of blueberries yesterday for my cereal. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

    • Maybe it’s not the blueberries after all, Brooklyn! I think it’s all you! Enjoy your day, Paul. Be well and stay safe out there…☃️🙋🏻‍♀️

  4. I agree with Paul that this has been an unusually easy week. Got a kick out of “flake news.” Rochester usually holds its own against Buffalo in snowfall, though this year we’re having what’s been called a “snow drought.” Wishing all a good day.

    • Ssshhh…Snow drought? The month’s not over yet..and we know how crazy March can be! 😉And yes, it’s definitely been an easy week. The flake news? LOL! Tks…we’ve definitely had our fill of that! Wishing you a good day too, Caroline…Be well and stay safe…☃️🙋🏻‍♀️

  5. ⚾️ It WAS NO WONDER that despite the WILLOW trees surrounding the ball park, SWORN to provide cool breezes, it still wouldn’t keep the pitcher on the MOUND from getting hot and SWEATY…⚾️

    ❄️ A slender build, so WILLOW-like, she couldn’t help to shovel,
    She thought though of that older man who lived in the old hovel
    A MOUND of snow would cause him to be stuck in that old place,
    And she had SWORN to herself that to his aid she would race…
    She worried so ‘bout what to do, her palms were SWEATY now…
    And then she thought…”His neighbor down the street..he has a plow”
    So calling him assured her that the man won’t be snowed under…
    Good neighbors are a blessing….and this guy? There WAS NO WONDER…❄️

  6. Hi all – No problem with the words. Since the dialog didn’t include “snow”, “Was snow” was pretty obvious as the start of the answer. Thought “problem” or “surprise” but needed the letters to see “wonder.”
    Talk about timely! It looks like my nephew in Denver is about to get slammed by a record-breaking snowfall.

    Good wishes to everyone, especially those in the path of the snowstorm.

    “After completing their SWEATY task of burying the treasure beneath a shellMOUND behind the WILLOW tree, the pirate crew was SWORN to secrecy.”

    Ok Angela, besides the snowstorm today, here’s another one for the coincidence books. I laughed at your “shovel off to Buffalo” reference but I didn’t know how I knew the phrase “shuffle off….”
    When I looked it up, I found it was a song in the movie 42nd Street — which I’ve been reading about all week! (because I had “Lullaby of Broadway” stuck in my head — no idea why).

    • “Shuffle off to Buffalo”..we say that all the time. Maybe it’s a NY thing! 😂 And weather? We’ve had the past two days where we’ve hit or skirted with 70°…in fact it’s 65 now…but tonight and tomorrow? Freezing temps and wind chills in the teens…Marzo è pazzo! March is crazy…There’s no telling what you’ll get! 😱Have a good one, Steve. Be well and stay safe out there…☃️🙋🏻‍♀️

    • Hi Steve. The letters might spell downer, but the solution is punning the phrase..”It’s no wonder”……https://tinyurl.com/jh5pcv8u You know when you see those quotes, it’s always going to be something cute and clever! Have a good one…and stay safe out there…☃️🙋🏻‍♀️

      • I suppose only us old people would remember that a “downer” used to mean an unfortunate event so, still a pun. Also “downy snow” (soft snow) so, really, a double pun.
