What was it..? Rain..? Looked like rain. Sounded like rain.
Stuck my hand out from under the overhang to find little bits of sand landing on my outstretched palm.
SAND...? (Technically ash )
How many of us remember 8:32 AM, May 18, 1980..?
Purple lightning. Black sky. Darkness for two days. Like it was yesterday. Ruined the windows on my Lincoln Mark IV. Ruined a perfectly good Home & Energy Show.
Yes, I celebrate the fact that 99.9% of us lived through the event. What a day to remember.
HAPPY 32ND ANNIVERSARY MT. ST. HELENS..!
