Cricket and Fish heard of a personal connection to the Mt St Helens activity that Cricket noticed on the news. Their great uncle (GUK) sent us an email about his safe arrival in Washington State, to the delight of Mt St Helens. Naturally we googled for the latest on this event and enjoyed the CVO Photo Archives - Mount St. Helens - 2004 and the Yubanet reports most.
Fish was shocked to learn about the people killed by Mt St Helens in 1980, and begged to be reassured that it would not endanger us! Out comes the globe again, perfect opportunity for geography "lesson".
