    Default May 18, 1980 - Mt. St. Helens Eruption!

    Wow, THIRTY YEARS?????

    Woke up remembering that it's May 18th. I remember May 18, 1980 well, being 6 years old and living in Spokane - the sky got dark backwards - west to east - in the early afternoon and we didn't see the sun for a few days.

    Anyone else remember that event, or live through it?

    10 Chevy Traverse LT AWD
    02 Chevy Trailblazer LS (110K+ miles - loaded except for 4WD - WRECKED!)
    99 Chevy Cavalier LS (105K+ miles - commuter car)
    78 Chevy Suburban Silverado (454, 3/4 ton)
    62 GMC 3/4 ton Pickup (350 police interceptor)

    I remember it well, we were getting ready to go to BC for a month long fishing trip and my dad decided to cancel because we would have to drive throught the area coming up from Ca. The next summer we drove through and I remember thinking the area looked so desolate and forlorn.

    I had to install a new air filter on my car. What a mess.

    Thirty years? Dang. Seems like only yesterday.
