May 18, 1980 -- The day Mt. St. Helens blew


Recommended Posts

I remember it well, it was all over the news of course.   I actually had a small vial of volcanic dust from that eruption that I kept for years.  Not sure what happened to it.

I do! I did a school project of it a couple of years later.

I honestly don't remember this as I would have only been about 6 years old at the time. In fact, when I think back on things, I really can't remember much of anything that far back other than a few memories of when I was about 7 years old and go my first Atari in about Christmas of '81 or '82, and then most of my memories seem to be in check starting around 1984 when I was about 9 - 10 years old.
