I used to live in eastern Oregon. I remember when Mt St Helens blew. Both scary and neat at the same time.

Metla, dear girl, that's easy to top!

Glitch should be a registered Democrat, and vote a party ticket.

I've seen all 4 volcanoes across the inlet blow at least once. Some 2 and some 3 times. It's awsome. Makes a person feel real puny.

I suspected as much. Thanks for confirming my suspicions.

I'm in agreement with Rance. Watching nature exhibit its power is an awesome spectacle. Providing you are watching from a safe distance.

Those who hate their environment, but continue to live there anyway and claim to be "happy", are mentally defective.

and you got your degree in psychology.......where?

You have a lot of nerve calling people mentally defective since you seem to be pretty crabby and unhappy for some reason.

Ya know - I don't like tornado's - scare the heck out of me, grew up with that possibility and spent 50 years there, but I did not leave MN because of them. When we moved up here, I didn't know about the daily quakes in AK, found a website by accident and came to know. Have also heard that as long as the "little thunders" are happening, makes it less likely for a big one? I don't think I much care for earthquakes either, but not going to leave Alaska because of them. No one is completely happy with everything in their life. I don't like cleaning the bathroom, but do it....(Maybe need an outhouse ). I do like the solitude, the quiet, the clean air, the wildlife, the scenery, discovering what is new and different, other peoples ideas, the possibilities....You have to weigh the good and not so good and go from there, just like with anything else.
