Mount St. Helens Eruption














The Volcano erupts.

May 18, 1980


33 years ago today!



        




It's hard to believe Mount St. Helens,
 blew her top, this day 
May 18, 1980. 8:32 am.  
A 5.1 magnitude earth quake.
That's thirty-three years ago.  
I hate to say this old cliche, but:  


It seems like yesterday.


I've forgotten that it killed 57 people.


That was then, Today is a new Day.  
It's all better, now.
