May 18th is the 32nd anniversary of the eruption of Mt. St. Helens. Have you ever experienced or witnessed the awesome power of nature?
It’s not May 18th where I am anymore, but it’s still May 18th in some places.
I was answering this question of @gailcalled’s here couldn’t think of a way to ask a question about Mt. St. Helens but now I have.
I was lucky enough to be living in Portland, OR at the time and got to witness the power of that mountain.
I actually slept through the May 18th eruption. I was sleeping in that day, but if I had known she was going to blow, I certainly would have gotten up and gone somewhere that I could have seen it.
But… she had had a number of more minor eruptions in the previous months that were pretty awesome to see.
How has nature impressed the hell out of you?
