Mt. St. Helen's Eruption: 40 years ago today

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AYla6q3is6w

Living not too far away from Mt. St. Helen's during that time, it was quite a lifetime experience to know the local volcano was going to erupt at any time.

There was no social media so updates came only from official news channels. We were tuned in to our TVs, radios, newspapers and the sky. There were many times when a thin flume escaped the mountain and could be seen from my home.

It was Sunday morning, May 18, when the mountain finally erupted.

And suddenly this song took on a whole new meaning: https://youtu.be/PECjfHjvVQA
