Rime and Reason

I've begun doing the NY Times Crossword puzzles on my iPhone. Sometimes it feels like a waste of time, but I'm building my vocabulary and keeping my synapses in working order, right? Well, here's a confession... I can only do the Monday puzzles. It's the brain damage, right?
Well, there are recurring clues that you learn after doing dozens of puzzles. One of them happens to be "Hoarfrost" and the answer is "rime." Now, i wasn't really sure what hoarfrost was, but when i awoke this morning, I walked out in my front yard and I heard a voice actually speak to me(in my mind), "this is hoarfrost."

I have done all the Monday crossword puzzles for the last two years on my iPhone recently. I guess I might have to try and do Tuesday? Hmmm.
It's so satisfying to actually be able to DO them!
