Sticky Situations - 1/21/19

Today's main puzzle takes us to Oregon.  But I wanted to kick things off with this Missouri cache.  Although there's not really any puzzle to it, it does highlight a particularly interesting bit of history that occurred 100 years ago last week, and which was the theme of the MIT puzzlehunt that happened over the weekend.  I had a chance to participate remotely this year, and it was fun, although a bit overwhelming due to the huge size of the operation and the very large teams involved:

Grandma Moses and the Molasses Flood of 1919

While there were a couple of spots where I made some decent contributions during the hunt, I spent quite a bit of time just watching other people work through the puzzles via the online spreadsheets.  Some of them were just crazy fast whereas most of the time these days I feel:

Slow as Molasses 


P.S.  My favorite weatherman was a little off on his predictions ... we only got a foot of snow Saturday night.  But I'm not complaining.  That's definitely more than enough.

A Bridge Too Close - 1/20/19

As I sit here in upstate New York my favorite weatherman has predicted 21 inches of snow for us this weekend.  Yikes. I'll follow up and let you know how it turns out.

I figured I'd follow up on yesterday's bridge-related puzzles with this one, from Colorado:

Visually Pleasing - 1/19/19

Today's central New York puzzle is part of a series that's been popping up recently.  The puzzle isn't difficult, but I certainly found it not only interesting but:

and if you like that one you might also enjoy:  Bridges #5: Fun & Amusing

I'll never forget caching up in Rochester one day and my friend questioning the route I was planning to take from one side of the Irondequoit Bay to the other.  "I'm just going to drive across the bridge," I said.  "There is no bridge!" she insisted.  I had just driven across it about two months earlier, so I knew there was a bridge there.  Except ... there wasn't.  It's only there in the winter months.  I had to see it to believe it.

Tomorrow we'll ...

Today's unique Washington State puzzle dropped into my inbox this week, and I had fun trying it out. If you've ever thought about passing along something to me, I hope you will.  I get some great suggestions that way. Before this I had never seen a:
