Quote from: Mike Cl on February 01, 2021, 09:39:55 AM300 miles?? Were you living in Washington then? Where? My grandparents farm was about 120 miles from Mt. St. Helens, in Oregon near a small town of St. Helens, Oregon. They both heard the explosion and saw the ash clouds rising up. The got so much ash that my grandfather had to climb the roof and shovel off the ash before it caused the roof to cave in. The ash was very, very heavy. On my next visit (I lived in CA at the time) they gave me a small round margarine tub of the ash--it must have weighed a couple of pounds--very heavy. Even at that distance they were cautioned to wear a mask when going outside. Inhaling that ash was a deadly thing to do.
