THAT'S (NOT VERY) COLD, “J”

2: This country's “Three Holy Mountains” are Mount Tate, Mount Haku, and Mount Fuji.

4: In the Parable of the Good Samaritan, the traveler is journeying from this city, home to the highest peak in Israel, to Jericho, one of the country's lowest elevations.

6: The highest temperature recorded in this city since it became a state capital in 1959 was 90 degrees on July 7, 1975.

8: Nordjylland, the northernmost county on this Danish peninsula, is surprisingly warm compared to European regions of similar latitude.

10: This Smokey Mountain city, home to East Tennessee State University, was named for the President who lived in nearby Greeneville.

OPERATIC DEATHS

I have an e-mail address for the author of this category, but no user name. If this is you, please take a bow.

3. In this Mozart opera, the title character is dragged to hell by a talking statue.

6. This disease slowly claims the lives of the heroines of "La Traviata," and "La Boheme."

9. This Leoncavallo opera features fatal stabbings by a jealous clown.

12. Method of execution used in "Salome," "Turandot," and Handel's "Julius Caesar;" the proof is later displayed onstage.

15. Spoiler alert! In Wagner's Ring Cycle, this group of nymphs drags Hagen to a watery death and reclaims the ring.

This clue was both wrong and terrible. If you deduced JOHNSON CITY from ETSU, good on you. You get points. Otherwise, play the RQ. It's much better, I promise.

Turns out it's Magna, who had problems logging in last week.
