Some of the worst stories I've heard was Vietnam War stories and mt st helens erupting..I've made that area my playground my entire life, couldn't imagine that day

On a lighter note does anyone have any good rumors if they will open spirit lake highway up to at least cold water lake ??

It was a Sunday, I was 14 years old. We lived about 1/2 mile from where I live now in Buckley. My parents threw a “May Party” every year. Live band, clay pigeons, pig roast, 3 days and at the peak 500 people. People were hung over and some still sleeping. We were cooking pancakes as fast as we could. You could hear the low rumbling in the distance as the mountain blew. No one knew what happened. Then when a light ash started falling someone turned on the tv.

The next year we went dirt bike riding and fishing in the Potholes. The ash seemed like it was 6” deep. You had to clean your air filter all the time. It was unlike any normal dust. It had weight and was very fine. 43 years later I can’t even tell it happened, but know it’s just beneath the vegetation.

 High school and watched it from my families rooftop. Headed to Sun Lakes that weekend and remember going through Ephrata, looked like moonscape.
The things that come to those who wait, may be the things left by those who got there first!
