Answer:  THERMMOMMETER

(Nice, long, 13-letter answer!  Probably could have worked with two less Ms, but I guess Hoyt felt they were necessary.  None of the clue words were new, but all but “vormee” were new jumbles.  Great answer letter layout.  Maybe the extra Ms made it a little tougher.  Classic family scene cartoon.  Nice to see the Dean Winters Allstate character used as a clue word.  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I went back and forth between THER-MOM-ETER and THERM-MOM-METER but here’s why, in the end, I went with THERM-MOM-METER. A THERM is actually a unit/quantity of heat and METER is a gauge so I sort of liked it better that way. It was a tough call. I went back and forth a few times before deciding.

    Sure. The technical route. That works. I guess I was just expecting the phonetic. — YUR
