Visual Description:  Unwelcome portend of the not so distant future.

SLURY  =  SURLY,  ADURF  =  FRAUD,  BRUMEN  =  NUMBER,  SHUBLE  =  BUSHEL   —   Giving us:  SLFDNUUSH

Clue/Question:  What the city fathers used to clean up after the winter storm.

Answer:  A SLUSH FUND

(Eh!  Pretty simple clue words.  And, they should have switched the order of “brumen” and “shuble” – or the “slury” and “adurf” – to give us a better scrambling of the answer letters.  As it is, you can see “slush”, from the two ends, and “fd” is a known abbreviation for “fund”.  And, who wants to think about snow storms and plows and messy streets, anyway?  That’s coming soon enough, for the Northeast and Midwest and Mountain!)   — YUR

    Thanks, Ken. I appreciate the kind words. If you think I’m good at the jumble you should see me at Wheel of Fortune. Just the other night they had a puzzle categorized as “Same Letter”, where three or more words will start with the same letter. The first word had 9 letters, the second 4, and the third 7. With the last two spaces of the first showing “T” and “E”, and the 6th space of the third showing “E” I said CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES! Yeah. Yer Uncle Rave was correct. Impressed the wife! But, it still doesn’t beat my all-time WoF solve. A bunch of years ago they had a puzzle where the category was “Thing”, and it had 5 spaces, a hyphen, 1 space, another hyphen, and then 4 spaces. I got it with zero letters. Can you guess what the answer was? Maybe I should redo this as a post, so more can read it and guess. What do you think?
