Happy Tuesday! Here at Trash Panda Puzzle Studios (okay, so it’s just my house), I finally received some snowfall over the weekend. Sure, 1.5 in. of snow isn’t much, but the splash of white help to really brighten up the neighborhood. We’re still quite behind on snowfall for the season, but every little bit helps.
Crossword time! Today’s Teeny Tuesday is a 9x12 crossword with standard symmetry. I normally like to write quite difficult clues for my puzzles. With today’s crossword, I aimed to have it close to a Monday difficulty as I could. Surprisingly, I found trying to write easy clues much harder than my normal writing. I need to practice on varying my cluing difficulty since I was recently asked to be a part of… well, I can’t say quite yet. 😉
