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.
