I think most everyone, who lives in the Northwest, remembers where they were the day Mount St. Helens erupted. that was 29 years ago today! It doesn't seem like that much time has passed since then, but it sure has! Where does the time go?
I was doing some grocery shopping.......those were the days long before cell phones, but I heard the report on the radio on the way home. Part of I-5 (the MAIN freeway here) was closed for quite sometime due to flooding. There was ash everywhere! What a mess.....I remember being concerned because it seemed to do damage to cars.....Oh boy, that could be a problem!
It was quite a "thing" for awhile after the eruption to make all sorts of things out of the ash. It seemed everyone had a Christmas ornament made from it and you could find pieces in many gift shops. :-)
Too bad we didn't have eBay back then. It would have been quite a money maker. Nothing like a little ash souvenir, by golly.
I hope you had a wonderful weekend.
