So. I guess you guys want to know about the volcano, huh? You’ve probably seen the AP story already. Well, here’s a statement from the USGS that makes it sounds as if we’ll be having more of the same sometime soon.
The funny thing is, I didn’t even know about the venting today until I received an email from Dana, all the way back in New York. Mt. St Helens is about 90-100 miles southwest of here, so it’s not so much on our radar. Although, oddly enough, Science Girl and I were discussing the possibility of making a road trip down there some weekend to see how the reforestation was coming along. I guess we’ll be postponing that for the time being.
The mountain I’m more concerned about is The Mountain, AKA Mt. Rainier. It’s due. And when it goes, it’s gonna be a bad day for a lot of people around the south end of the Sound.
I’ll be sure to take pictures.
