Some of you have been dreading Wednesday’s puzzles in recent weeks – well this one will make a pleasant change. A little harder than the last two days, but most of you should be able to cope with this one.
I was racing through this one, with thoughts of a relatively early night, when suddenly I hit a brick wall in the bottom right hand corner. At least three out of the five difficulty stars are for this corner – see what you think.
Yesterday was a big day here on Big Dave’s Blog – for the first time there were over 1000 hits on the site. This was partly because it was the first daily cryptic that was covered in detail, and partly due to some excellent mentions on Times for the Times and Fifteensquared, for which I would like to thank Peter and Neil respectively. Peter also contributed to yesterday’s comments.
Woke up this morning to find that the light dusting of snow that has been around for a few days has been replaced by a full carpet – I have added a new picture to the Gallery. As a new feature, started yesterday with “Freight Train”, some hints link to supplementary information!!
