Possibly a major eruption.
That's so freaky! I just told my husband that I had a feeling Mt St Helens was gonna go this weekend! I have been watching the earthquakes on the site that monitors activity, and last week was very active.
As scary as these eruptions are, there is something very majestic and humbling about them. I can only imagine what it feels like to live near one.
And now we wait... weeks? months?
The USGS/Cascades Volcano Observatory, in Vancouver, Washington and the University of Washington Pacific Northwest Seismograph Network continue to monitor the situation closely and will issue additional updates and changes in alert level as warranted.
http://www.fs.fed.us/gpnf/volcanocams/msh/ - This is a static image of Mount St. Helens, taken from the Johnston Ridge Observatory. The Observatory and VolcanoCam are located at an elevation of approximately 4,500 feet, about five miles from the volcano. Updated every 5 minutes, but useful only in daylight and clear weather.
It seems that the chickens [and Kerrie ] knew that the eruption was coming before the USGS. According to a person interviewed on the news, his chickens gave him about 15 minutes warning. Interesting if true.
Does this mean we should not count our Kerries befor there hatched?
I had been monitoringhttp://www.pnsn.org/recenteqs/latest.htm [Broken] website all last week, and I had noticed the activity had increased more frequent last Friday. This past weekend, I swore up and down to my husband and daughter that I had a feeling something was going to happen within the week with Mt St Helens. That was all I had mentioned, and then the mountain ended up burping ash! Some would just call me extremely logical in my guess
I think Kerrie is secretly taking her cues from the chickens and then taking all of the credit.
:rofl: Yea, me and the hens are pretty tight...
I have just invented a" Kerrieometer", all i need is a kerrie to finish
my invention. How much ash is being pumped out of Mt st helens,
is it going to be problematic?

We missed the last one and barely caught this one. Just before it goes dark you can see the eruption begin. At least it happened this time before sunset.
Some cool shots close-up
Lots of earthquakes around 3.0...lava dome has collapsed, she's waking again!
Well I hope she wakes in a good mood.
The Mt St Helens cam has some great views today
