Unlike yesterday’s Strands game, today’s was a simple one to solve because the theme became clear as soon as I found one answer. That word was CABLE, and together with the ‘On the grid’ hint that was enough to set me on my way. After that it was merely a case of hunting down solutions; ELECTRIC, WATER, TELEPHONE etc. I suspect many others will find this to be a straightforward one, too…
