for a dusting , st helens is spewing smoke , started around 11 i think , they have a volcaneo advisory in effect,the 1000 ft. high dome has risen and 2.5 inches this week, i guess in their terms that is alot,they don,t expect it to be as bad as 1980 when it erupts, there goes our sunny skies and nice weather i guess.wonder what what mt ranier is doing and the rest of them in this so called ring of fire that runs along the west coast of N.A.Mt.WASH and Ranier has the poetiental to erupt at any time as well i think and they could sure cause alot of damage.

Mexico sorta does that with us Texicans.
When they burn their fields each year,
they share the smoke with us for a week or more.
Very generous of y'all.
Now if only someone would share a little rain with us.

As a point of reference, in 1980 the face of St Helens was bulging out at the rate of several feet per day. It kind of puzzles me that this eruption cycle is even making the national news.

And if Rainier erupts, well, I'm just gonna kiss my big ol' butt goodbye. Rainier is about 25 mi SE of me.

yowzer.... that's a tad close... do you know anything about its seismic activity?
I'll tell you this much, I always cast a nervous eye toward Mt. Hood when earthquakes and volcanic activity are brought up... they say it's still an active site, and so is Mt. Tabor, which is located smack dab in the middle of Portland. Hate to see the whole chain go up... "Oh, the humanity" doesn't begin to cover it.

I'm not worried about an eruption of Rainier. What worries me is that it's laced with fissures that are allowing sulfur dioxide to escape, and that combines with meltwater to make sulfuric acid, which is dissolving the rock. I expect the big event on Rainier will be a structural collapse of one or more faces of the mountain, and the resulting lahar that will wipe out towns like Orting and parts of the Tacoma tideflats.

Arg.. arg arg... gotta take something back... Tabor is, to all intents and purposes, an extinct volcano.

i guess the news people needs something to talk about today they wore out the debate around two last night i think however they kept at it,yup i think rainer and some others has the potential to do an awful lot of damage, sure hope they calm down, duck and stay safe.

... so far just a steam cloud with a teeny bit of ash... hope it stays that way....

me too, the ash is what bothered me the most last time, everything was covered, and it was hard on the pastures.guess we got off lucky though compared to what others lost.
