33 Years Ago, Today...

I was sleeping. It was a Sunday morning, about 08:30 am.

I was awoken by a very loud BOOM!!

I didn't think anything of it. I thought it was thunder and lightning or something. I was 15 years old.

Then as we all woke up and started our day, we turned on the TV and saw it right there.

It was crazy! Unbelievable.

So, I ran outside and looked in to the air and I didn't see much. Just a lot of clouds off to the South.

So, I climbed on top of my roof and looked to the South East and there it was....

Mt. St. Helens had erupted. And I watched it from my roof top.

What a weird experience. I had always had nightmares of Mt. Rainier erupting. So... I'm still waiting for that.

That's crazy JR.

I used to watch the old 80's movie about that all the time growing up.

It was definitely a sight to behold.

I have been there at Windy Ridge twice since then. The first time was back in 1997. It made me feel extremely small. It looked like everything as far as the eye could see was just vaporized.

Last time I was there was a few years ago and it's definitely coming back.

Not too many years after it blew, a guy my Dad worked with went skiiing out there.

He came back and said he had a good time, but was a little upset because they wouldn't let him ski on the north face.
