Jumble Answers for 10/13/2021








Happy Wednesday everyone! This guy should listen to his wife because she’s 100% correct (aren’t they always??? 😂) According to NOAA.gov, a 5-day forecast can accurately predict the weather about 90% of the time. A 7-day forecast brings the accuracy down to 80%, and a 10-day one is right only about half the time.

No new clue words were in the lineup today. For the second day in a row all of the anagrams happened to be. I’m certain that a shower hands would have us all agreeing that the six-letter ones were more challenging than fives. NSALAD caused me to freeze for a couple of minutes so it’ll be my pick for today’s hardest anagram.

Our cartoon showed us a couple having a conversation about the weather over their morning coffee. The dialogue exchange indicates they having an outing planned for the following weekend and we see him checking the forecast for that particular day on his tablet. He remarks that the website he’s using shows it’ll be sunny, but she rains on his parade by telling him to not get his hopes up as the date is too far out to tell.

Some of Jeff’s gems were the little Jumble “J” logos on their shirts, an “I ❤️ Jumble” logo on his coffee cup and “The Tweedy Show” logo on hers, and my favorite which was the weather forecast on the screen of the tablet which showed the next seven-days as being: sunny, thunderstorms, sunny, partly sunny, rainy, partly cloudy and sunny.

The final solve was an anagram consisting of 11-letters. A bit of an oddity was that one of today’s clue words (PLACID) was scrambled in the last six-letters of the layout! The “ERP” in the middle made PREDICTABLE a breeze to decipher bringing this one to a close. On to tomorrow! Until then, be well and enjoy the day. //Mike

  2. Good Morning, Everyone…. ☀️💦WEATHER…OR NOT 💦☀️

    🎶 Don’t know why…There’s no SUN up in the sky…STORMY WEATHER…Since my man and I ain’t together…Keeps raining all of the time..🎶 “Stormy Weather” – Miss Etta James 1960 https://tinyurl.com/24b4vxb7

    ☀️💦 Our couple, wearing “Jumble” shirts, they have an outing planned,
    Our guy is feeling PLACID, but our woman…not so grand…
    He’s drinking from a “Jumble” mug, while “Tweedy” is her choice,
    Her look that of a TIGER, as she speaks in doubting voice…
    I’m thinking golfing outing, so she’ll wear no SANDAL there,
    But maybe don a visor, as we see her husband wear…
    And on the weather chart he’s pointing to a day of rain,
    Although that last day showing? Sun’s a BLAZE on the terrain…
    I guess he’s the believer…but our girl? She’s less convincible…
    No fair-weather sort is she…and she seems the more PREDICTABLE!💦☀️

  3. 🐅Knowing how her daughter loved her stuffed TIGER, it was PREDICTABLE that she’d be drawn to the sample SANDAL showing an image of a PLACID one lying under a BLAZE of sun…🐅

    🙇🏻‍♀️ She read the book called “TIGER Eyes”, stayed PLACID as she read,
    But then a BLAZE of sadness rose…it’s plight brought her such dread…
    From her bed one SANDAL did fall, as she lay there feeling sad…
    Thinking about poor Davey and the death of her young Dad
    Guess life can be cruel and it shows that no one is invincible…
    And most times things will happen that could hardly be PREDICTABLE..🙇🏻‍♀️

  4. It’s “hump-day” how’s everyone ? My wife , who is very PLACID, said “ let’s do the jumble “, so after some time , we got all the words easily, but the jumble was hard !! My mind was a BLAZE , so I looked at her and said “ I can’t get it “ !! Then she looked at me and said, “ well that’s PREDICTABLE “ !!! Everyone have a great day !

  5. Good morning. Breezed through the words but had a long pause at the cartoon answer. I was even tempted to look up the answer but then the light bulb went off and the answer appeared. Loved your song choice Angela. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

    • Good morning Paul. With the mention of “outing” in the dialogue my first thought was that the answer would somehow be golf related because he was wearing a visor and their clothing looked like athletic attire. A nice challenge (and clever finish) for a Wednesday!

  6. With long words, I often look for possible endings. The only ending I noticed here was able, which fortunately worked. The clue word Placid can also be found in the answer. Wishing all a good day.

    • That’s a great tip, Caroline. With nothing coming into view, I did the opposite and looked for a prefix and noticed PRE (in reverse) in the middle of the layout. Wishing you a wonder-fall Wednesday!

  7. You can’t do better than Etta James for a song choice but I would also allow Lena Horne’s version. Doing the Jumble this morning as a rain storm subsides. It roared like a Tiger but it’s now Placid outside and expecting a Blaze of sun which is perfect for wearing Sandal(s). Expecting a glorious fall weekend in Old Omaha with trees crowned in shades of yellow, orange, red, purple and brown.

    • That’s a great version, OO. The weather here in the Northeast has been cold (40’s & 50’s overnight) and 75 during the day. It’s perfect sleeping weather so no compaints here. Enjoy the day.

    • Hi OO. I’ve already used Miss Horne’s version in the past…Hope your night’s going well…💦☀️🙋🏻‍♀️

  8. If you feel that your plans are restricted
    By whatever weather’s predicted
    I’m sure you’ll agree
    Back up plan A with plan B
    That way you won’t feel so conflicted!

    • Hi Helen. My wife is traveling to Edmonton for business next week and we looked at the forecast…….. it’s already below feezing overnight and the daytime temps aren’t much higher!

      • Hello Mike: Yes Edmonton is fickle for weather. There’s no predicting anything there. Weather is a bit more reliable here in S Ontario, although unseasonably warm today for mid Oct. but it’s great that kids can be outside for recesses and phys ed to keep covid at bay.

    • Hi Helen…

      ☀️ When a husband and wife disagree,
      It’s a smart move if he gives to she…
      That sacred last word,
      So no pot will be stirred…
      Or a dog house is where he may be…☀️

      💦 When it comes to predicting the weather,
      Doppler radar has def made things better…
      But a stretch of 10 days?
      May encounter some haze…
      Safe to pack both bikini and sweater! 💦

      ☀️While our guy wants so bad to believe,
      Here’s his wife who thinks long range deceives …
      So she tells him he’s wrong,
      To believe that wind-song…
      10 day’s out? One can hardly perceive…☀️

      💦 It’s an outing our couple has planned,
      And the husband’s outlook is quite grand…
      But the wife calls naive,
      Anyone who’d believe…
      One can cover that long of a span…💦

      ☀️It’s predictable weather’s a hunch,
      Though today radar helps quite a bunch…
      But if long term you seek,
      Accuracy grows weak…
      And 10 days? Lot of numbers to crunch! ☀️

      • Oopppsss…Line 3 on the first limerick should read SACRED, not Scared…🤦🏻‍♀️

  9. I miscopied the letters from placid ,missing the P which did me in for the cartoon solution,thinking calibrated rather than predictable.Guess it’s no longer early in the week

    • It’s easy to do and we’ve all done it more than once, Chuck. 🤦🏼‍♂️
      I’m sure you’ll be back on track tomorrow. Take care.

  10. Just got back from a successful gambling trip and started looking at the J again. With the exception of SANDAL all the other words were sweet and easy……..
    I have already finished tomorrow’s J and it’s not bad either.
    Stay warm if you are cold or come here where it’s quite moderate. Windy though with fire weather this weekend.
