NYT Spelling Bee 4-30-21 final

Happy Arbor Day and happy Lag BaOmer! They were saying it would be record-breaking temperatures in LA today, and I don’t know yet if records were set, but it’s definitely been hot. Yet tomorrow the temperatures are supposed to drop from today’s almost-90 to almost-70. Drop in 20 degrees day over day. Do I understand? No. Am I appreciative? Very much so!

Yesterday I missed ACAI, CACTI, CANCAN, GIGANTIC, INTACT, KICK, KICKING, KNICKNACK, TACIT, TACT, TACTICIAN, and TINCT.

Meatier Misses

CANTATA: A medium-length narrative piece of music for voices with instrumental accompaniment, typically with solos, chorus, and orchestra.
CATKIN: A flowering spike of trees such as willow and hazel. Catkins are typically downy, pendulous, composed of flowers of a single sex, and wind-pollinated.

As if you needed yet another reason to visit New Hampshire.

Today’s summary

Final score: 47 words for 197 points.
Genius minimum: 197 points.
First word: EXTANT.
Pangram: EXULTANT.

About raabidfun

I'm a guy living the #raabidfun lifestyle. I figured I would create a blog about crossword puzzles I do. The idea is to do the NYT crossword and the WSJ crossword daily as much as I can. That includes when I don't finish and have clearly failed. They can be difficult. Also I am not an attorney, and any legal analysis in this blog reflects my interpretation, which means it can be flawed and should not be relied upon for use in legal matters (especially against me).
