Wizard of Oz: Miss Gulch cycling through a cyclone

Miss Almira Gulch — aka the Wicked Witch of the East, aka Nessarose — was famously caught up in a tornado while riding her bicycle in rural Kansas. For my bicycling friends in the US Midwest down through Texas, I hope you’re not getting caught up like Miss Gulch on those storms this week!

    Miss Gulch is the Wicked Witch of the WEST aka Elphaba. Her sister the Wicked Witch of the EAST aka Nessarose, was the one who had the house dropped on her in Munchkinland. She was the one with the ruby slippers on.
