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.
Watch this time lapse photography of the dome, before explosion.
