Are you getting it confused with the far more recent Icelandic volcano eruption. I don't recall the Mount St. Helen eruption at all.

Not sure how an eruption so huge and terrifying can be so easily forgotten 'cept it happened in a wilderness area..And so well documented too for all that.

40 years of other stuff far more relevant to me is one reason I guess.

Perhaps it's my funny memory - I can remember things like that, JFK, the Marchioness, John Lennon's murder, as though they happened yesterday, although with the exception of JFK I'm vague at dating them, but what actually happened yesterday...............
