Midi - A Solid Understanding

· By quatrevingtneuf · Published 6 months ago

Meta Prompt: The meta answer is the plural noun alluded to in clue 6-Down.
This is a submission for the Crosshare Discord Midi Challenge. The theme for this challenge is Antarctica; see if you can find the connection!
I didn't quite get the pangram on this construction, but I think it was a solid effort. Best of luck!
