Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 4949
animadversion, soundly, sandbag, xanthic

The glowing, xanthic, vesuvian flow crept down the mountain toward the town, and, when the mayor’s plan to stem the steaming stream with sandbags was approved despite my animadversion, I sandbagged the mayor, congratulated him on his fine plan, and invited him with us to the rim where I soundly sandbagged him again with a real bag of sand and fled the fields of fire with my family.
