A week ago that's all you heard on the news, now nothing. Is it going to blow or what?

I'm kind of digging the whole year of disasters thing. We need more. It can't end with just 4 hurricanes. And we need variety. I'm going to need a major earthquake and some serious Mississippi flooding as well.

From what I understand it may be more of a force than first expected....think of it this way, the longer you wait the bigger the boom.

St. Helens probably won't be so bad even if it does blow.

Rainier will destroy most of Renton and Tacoma when it shrugs, and it's pret' near due. Say goodbye to Boeing's single-aisle (737/757) plant.

It is erupting right now. It is what they call a dome building eruption.

Things like this will happen over the next 100's of years. Magma moves to the surface and causes the dome in the center of the crater to grow. Eventually, it will grow to the point that it will form a new top to the mountain.

The magma in the PNW is not like the stuff in the mid-Pacific. It is more like molasses than water. It doesn't flow as rapidly as the stuff in Hawaii.

It gets up to that dome, hits water/ice and melts it causing steam. The pressure blows a hole and you see steam and ash explosions.

It's pretty cool when you think about it. The Cascades are more or less hernias in the surface of the earth. This one is actively extruding new material from beneath the surface.
