So, the last 2 weeks have seen daily temperatures of 100+ degrees. I feel like I'm crossing one of the four deserts which surround and isolate the Land of Oz from the Great Outside.
I can totally understand why Princess Ozma transformed the sands into a deadly barrier. The heat alone would deter any fool from trying to cross into Oz.
In fact, there are actually four deserts which serve this purpose. They are: The Deadly Desert, The Shifting Sands, The Great Sandy Waste and The Impassable Desert.
At the moment, I feel like I'm crossing one of these heat-infested wastelands. I only hope Oz is not to far off, lest I be fried by the heat. At least now, I know how Jamie Diggs, his best friend Buddy and Capn' Bill felt when they crossed the Shifting Sands in Shadow Demon of Oz.
