Mt St Helens.. 33 Years Later

Thirty-three years ago
on May 18, 1980
Mt St Helens violently erupted
Today the mountain is quiet
but doesn't sleep

A wonderful sight. Goodness, is it that long already? Just three years longer than our major bushfire that wipes us out too.

Were you living in the Northwest in 1980? I remember that day like it was just yesterday. I posted some old photos from June or July of 1980 when we went up to some of the small towns in her path.

Harry Truman may you rest in peace up on your mountain were you buried your beloved wife.
