  1. It is interesting that all the articles I have ever read about the eruption of Mt. St. Helens always use Seattle as the reference point to where the mountain located. Granted, St. Helens is in Washington state, but the city of Portland, Oregon is a mere 60 miles away to the southwest. I was there in Portland that day when she blew her top. The vision of that ash cloud rising up thousands of feet into the sky is one I will never forget. I will also remember the city being covered with a layer of ash to include my car. That died a few days later from the ash that was injected into the cylinders. Seems when ash is heated to its melting point, it will coat the the engines moving parts with glass and eventually the engine will cease to work. Made it to the junk yard on two cylinders. Peace.

  2. Some very famous pictures of the volcano erupting out there. We met the guy who took them when he was working as a docent at the park. Glad I wasn’t there!

    Author Harry Turtledove has a trilogy called Super Volcano about the Yellowstone caldera letting go. It was obvious that he did his research on the geology behind it and was a very entertaining and informative read. Titles are; Eruption, All Fall Down and Things Fall Apart.

  3. Ash landed in Bozeman, where I was a college student. We collected samples and put them under the microscope. They are crystalline knives in shape. Don’t breath in volcanic ash. It’s very damaging to soft lung tissue. Keep N95 or higher masks in your bugout gear.

  4. Mom just reminded me that Herman Wouk sent a nice handwritten response to my Grandmother’s letter thanking him for writing the Winds of War. What a nice touch! That’s a good lesson for all of us on the importance of interpersonal relations.
