NAEAR  =  ARENA,  VAOEB  =  ABOVE,  ZAABEL  =  ABLAZE,  AFRDIT  =  ADRIFT   —   Giving us:  EBEZER

Clue/Question:  Determining the wind speed on a calm day is this.

Answer:  A BREEZE

(Much like this Jumble was a breeze.  As soon as I got “above” I said to myself: I bet all the clue words are going to start with A today, and I was right.  To what end, I don’t know!  They were very run of the mill words, and none of the As were used in the answer.  Maybe, it was just for the novelty of it.  It didn’t make it any harder, that is for sure.  Unless there’s some deep symbolism here, like a dopey M. Night Shyamalan film, which I don’t particularly care for either, I don’t think today’s is very good.  C’ést la vie!  Better luck tomorrow.  Take care, friends.)   —   YUR

    ARENA! Not only did Jeff and I think about this all day, we tried backing into it, and still couldn’t get it! I was so angry with myself! We’ve had this word before, also, I think! Finally, Jeff cheated and told me to think coliseum and Spartacus! I still couldn’t get it! I screamed, “Give me the first letter!” A!!! It finally clicked! All words starting with A just about put me over the top! **I did like the golf them, however!

    That’s surprising that Jeff had to cheat! I thought he didn’t even need to see the written scrambled word, just hear the letters! I hope he “cheated” by checking here! Like I’ve said many times, you just never know what word is going to trip you up. Very often it’s a very common word. But, I figured if you saw that the other three words started with an A, you’d look for that stumper to start with one too!?! I do like the *clues* Jeff tried to give you! I think your brain was in lockout mode, kid! LOL!
