Saturday Puzzle Contest!
Saturday, November 5th, 2022

UPDATE: The winner is…K. Campos!

Last night was interesting. We had a very weak tornado touch down a couple of miles from us. One of the 18-year-old’s friends called her to say he saw it and was chasing it toward Malvern. I kind of wished he would’ve stopped by here and picked me up. My dd and I always wanted to be storm chasers. (And yeah, I know how weird that sounds.) But we gathered the kids in the basement. The 9-year-old hates storms and cried until we strapped her bike helmet on and told her she was extra safe. Our basement is very quiet. It really mutes the sounds, so we watched the forecast and complained about how long the tornado warning was lasting. I occasionally would have to “go pee” so I could take a look outside. When it was finally canceled, we were all ready for bed.

Do you have tornados in “your neck of the woods?”

    Surprisingly, when Hurricane Ian was battering the west coast of Florida, we had a tornado hit our area near Fort Lauderdale on the east Coast. It was quick, took down trees in the area and died out.

    It may be cold out, but he is good. He has his coffee!

    Tornados here in Michigan? Depends on who you talk to. Since I was born and raised here, I say yes. I personally have seen one and the devastation they can cause. But these days, we are told they are “straight line winds.” I really don’t know what they call the occasional funnel cloud, but what do I know. They still cause havoc!

    we’ve gotten a few small tornados in my area of NJ – they tend to skip across the tree tops. The man in the puzzle: A wildlife explorer headed out to monitor the local polar bear population.

    We have dust devils and haboobs… storms and wind can do a lot of damage… we can see a good number of trees taken down.

    3:57 When we lived in Central Ohio there was a storm warning system and the sirens would be tested every Wednesday at noon. We did have a few times where we went to our basement but, fortunately, never had a tornado hit our area. When we moved to Florida we had no idea that it also has a lot of tornadoes. Unfortunately, there is no siren warning system in the area where we live.

    Thankfully typically no tornados in our area (guess the earthquake risk is plenty, LOL).

    The guy is fueling up and contemplating how to best tackle crossing that open stretch of land before making his way up those peaks…

    He’s from the clan of the eagle. He is on a youth quest to become a man. He must make a trek to the old man of the snow and do a sweat. Then go back to the elder of the clan and tell him his vision.

    He’s holding his GPS and wondering what went wrong. He was supposed to rematerialize at one of the Iditarod checkpoints, not in Greenland.

    Thankfully we don’t get tornados in my area, but the storms always leave behind pretty bad damage and flash floods do happen during the first few weeks of November.

    He is the only survivor after a catastrophe but there might be a dark reason why he is the only survivor….just saying.

    Jeez, I hate using a mouse on these puzzles. Takes too long. When I click for the piece to stay put, it moves. Like using my hands better.

    He is looking for his lost girlfriend. They had an unexpected bad weather. She was not where they agreed to meet. He has just left her family who are very concerned.
