A.M. Buzz: Love as a puzzle

Good morning. I know it sounds crazy with the bright sunshine outside, but there’s a coastal flood warning out today. At least seven people were rescued from local waterways this weekend (not to mention 20 Boy Scouts this morning). Amaze your friends with your knowledge: High tide at the Key Bridge today is 9:03 a.m. and 9:38 p.m.

Raising the bar on marriage proposals:
You have to read this to believe it; an Alexandria man was so intent on making his proposal of marriage unique that he arranged to have The Washington Post crossword puzzle pop the question. She said yes, and they will video chat online at 1 p.m. today.

It’s not as easy if you’re an Orthodox Jew looking for love on this Passover. There’s a matchmaking crisis in that small community.

To judge from our breaking news blog, it was yet another murderous weekend in the DMV. I hate to load readers up with crime and violence first thing in the morning, but we do have more information about the Lululemon slaying that shocked Bethesda a few weeks ago.

Working it out: The Caps lost, but the Nats won two in a doubleheader.

No more delays, taxes are due tonight. (Mine? Filed, refunded and spent.)

I knew there was something I forgot to do today — the Boston Marathon! Not to mention the Pulitzer Prizes. There’s always next year, right?
