What were you doing 34 years ago on May 18 (the day Mount St. Helens erupted)?
May 18 is the 34th anniversary of the eruption of Mount St. Helens. At that time I was working for the USGS in Washington state, so the events of that day are still fresh in my mind. Would love to hear if others remember that day--what were you doing?

I wasn't even born yet. But it must have been an interesting day on the planet.
