Visual Description:  The expected outcome from a totally ridiculous *tradition*.  (But, it was the backdrop for one of my all-time favorite movies!)


Clue/Question:  The groundhog made his prediction without a . . .

(It’s a good thing – for me, at least – that this answer was so predictable!  Otherwise, it would have been very hard for me to back into “midday”!  Technically, not a compound word, but . . .  What the heck kind of word is it, anyway?  It’s an accepted word that was probably initially hyphenated, but then became part of the vernacular without the hyphen.  That’s my guess.  I just don’t know what to call it.  Anyhoo, it was the only word I struggled with, today.  Surprisingly, both “watch” and “stuffy” are new additions to the ralis95 clue word database!  Fantastic answer letter layout, again.  Great cartoon!  Anybody have one of those alarm clocks that let you choose the music you wake to?  Waking up to the same song every day . . . I guess that would be about the closest thing to having the Groundhog Day experience.  Brilliant concept movie!  Maybe Bill Murray is a god!  Well, not The God, but . . .  Be well and do good . . . over and over again, my friends.)   —   YUR

    This Jumble predicted what Phil predicted today! Love it! Groundhogs are so cute, especially the one that bit Mayor Bloomberg last year. Staten Island Chuck was his name. This year Bloomberg wore gloves! Haaaaa! Anyway, YUR, I also had a bit of trouble with MIDDAY and backed into it! Do ya think winter is gone????

    I really enjoy the newspaper jumble, however sometimes I have to rely on you to help me. What time in the morning can I depend on your answers?

    Winter, in general, is just so unpredictable. However, based on what we’ve seen so far, I don’t anticipate any serious winter weather. We’ll probably bounce around from the 30s to the 50s, and get more rain than snow. But, what do I know? This has been one for the record books, though! I can’t remember a milder winter.

    I wish I could give you a definitive time. I’m generally done with both the Jumble and the Cryptoquote by about 8:00 AM EST, but I never really know when I’m going to be able to post the spoilers. I have other obligations, and distractions of every sort to deal with. Look at today. It’s almost 1:00 PM and I still haven’t posted them. If you click on the Subscribe button you’ll receive an email as soon as I’ve posted it. It’s either that, or you keep checking to see if they’ve been posted. It’s your choice.

    Sorry that I can’t promise a specific time. If anybody wants to pay me to do this, then I know I could give this the highest priority. But, I don’t think anyone is looking to pay me for this service.
