Sidney BC , May 18th, 1980
We were asleep … then the dog whined, barked, moved restlessly … the cat meowed … we woke …
We heard it … we felt it … the windows shook … the whole house shook …
We went back to sleep …
Later, we learned what happened.
Mount St. Helens had erupted …
An entire landscape had changed forever.
They say it was the atmospheric conditions that allowed us to hear it … to feel it.
I will never forget that day!
Do you remember it? Where were you when it happened? Did you feel it too?
