Leeeeeeeets get ready to rumble!!!

Well, looks like St. Helens is getting ready to blow up after 24 years. Earthquakes have been constant for the last few days in the crater. And today the local news cut to what looks like steam and smoke emerging.

Sounds like we're in for a blast.

Well see. Smile

That's interesting, thanks for the notice Brian.
I have'nt heard a thing about it until you mentioned it here.
Earthquakes & hurricanes... sounds like a good name for a rock band.
Good luck.

Yeah but more than likely it will just be a tiny, well contained cone building eruption and nothing resembling the massive explosion that greeted the first one back in 1980.
Pity it was a rather fun and surreal experience that.
I'd never seen it rain sand before nor since.
Maybe if we're lucky they be some spectacular lava fountains but I doubt it.

For some reason, I've always had an interest in volcanoes. Of all the natural disasters, it's the most fascinating to me. One part of me does not want it to erupt, because if it was a big one, then the devastation would be pretty bad and I would feel bad for the people affected. The other part of me wouldn't mind if it erupted, because like I said volcanic eruptions interest me.

I agree with Payne in thinking it will probably just be a minor event, but he made me think back to the firestorm we had last year in San Diego around this time. If anyone is interested, I still have some pictures that are pretty dramatic. I would have posted one, but the size limit is too small to attach. (could resize, but pic wouldn't look good) The whole experience was similar to a volcanic eruption though. It rained ash for a few days straight, and in the middle of the afternoon it was almost pitch black.

I am ready to see this thing go. Brian and I are both only about 55-60 miles from the mountain. If anything goes down we are going to have an excellent view of the mountain.

Yet more evidence to support the fact that the world is coming to an end. Hurricanes, Global Warming, Mt. St. Helens, Decision 2004, Brittany Spears gets married.....the facts are all there people!

I have heard a lot of talk about Mount Ranier possibly erupting in the near future. The Earth is going through some major changes like it does every so 10,000 years.

Update: 30 minutes ago my local news station informed us that the lava dome is moving. Explosion of some sort is expected at any time in the next few hours or days. Nothing is concrete. Just gets better by the minute. Smile

Are you sure? Are you really sure? (About Britney, I mean; I'm willing to stipulate to Mt. St. Helens.)
Cheers,

St. Helens had a small steam and ash eruption at noon pacific time. This could have been the whole thing or this could be the first in a chain of events. Smile

Exciting.

If I were you guys (ppl near the volcano), I would get up there with a mate on video camera, and do a blaine type feat.

Try doing 200 passes in 5 minutes while standing on the volcano!!!

Not me...If I was anywhere near that thing when it pops, I'd run like a bee flew up my butt and wouldn't stop 'till they didn't speak English.

Oddly enough, about 200 miles east of me here in Mexico, there is another volcano sputtering like a trick birthday candle.

I'm glad I can swim.

Good luck, you guys. Keep your tennis shoes on.
Will you walk into my parlour? said the Spider to the Fly,
Tis the prettiest little parlour that ever you did spy;
The way into my parlour is up a winding stair,
And I've a many curious things to show when you are there.

Oh no, no, said the little Fly, to ask me is in vain,
For who goes up your winding stair
-can ne'er come down again.

I'd bet that the eruption would make a great cover for the pass.
