Here we are travelling in our caravan again, taking a chance with possible border closures, typical in a pandemic world. So far so good. However, border crossings are not the type of puzzles that I am talking about in this article.
Actually, most borders in Australia are open, at the moment. Not all, but most. The omicron case number, however, are not to be taken lightly. So we are taking extra precautions as we travel from place to place.
On the other hand, many of the areas, on our itinerary, have been experiencing stormy weather. Somehow, we have managed to miss most of these drenching downpours, with the exception of 1 or 2 days.

I must be coming late to the party because each time I have mentioned this free online puzzle, the reply is usually along the lines of “Oh yes, my friend suggested it last week.”
If you like Scrabble or Crosswords (affiliate links), you will love this puzzle too. Yes, it tests word knowledge but it also involves a level of strategic thinking while at the same time exercising your memory. You get 6 chances at solving the word of the day. Each attempt gives you more knowledge about required letters and their position in the word.
