NYT Crossword 12-5-22 Complete (contains spoilers)

I pulled out 15A Last car on classic trains: CABOOSE because it reminded me of the time I went to the CMSt.P&P railyard in Cle Elum, Washington. I’ve written about it before, but as a reminder, I was in Cle Elum for the financial audit of a resort, and I got to see this park that had a bunch of old cabooses. Some had platforms to walk up to them, and I tried the doors without success. Only years later–when I was writing the blog post about it–did I learn that the doors I had been trying were the doors to hotel rooms. I don’t know if anyone was in those hotel rooms on the snowy December day, but that was a thing I did.


16A ‘Bama rival: OLEMISS.
25A Bit of banking documentation: DEPOSITSLIP.
39A Cause of many California earthquakes: SANANDREASFAULT.
50A N.B.A. commissioner starting in 2014: HONEYBOOBOO.

62A “Oopsie!”… and a hint to the ends of 18-, 25-, 39- and 50-Across: MYBAD. MISS, SLIP, FAULT, BOOBOO.

Finished this one in 4:24.
