24 years ago today, on May 18, 1980, I was only 7 months and 2 days old. My mom and dad, ever since I was old enough to listen and understand, have told me that on that very day, they held me up on my Oma's balcony to watch as Mount St. Helens erupted, thrusting pillowed, dark smoke into the Washington sky. I don't remember it, unfortunately, but I've always liked thinking back, as each anniversary of the eruption has passed, and knowing that I was there to witness such an amazing display of the power of Mother Nature.
