Good retrospective.

I was in the Navy at the time but you couldn't escape the coverage on the news or in newspapers.  I still find it incredible that with the warning belches and the rising mound on the side of the mountain that scientists didn't take it more seriously (other than that David Johnston fella, who perished that day)...but much of volcanology can be dated BSH or ASH (before or after St Helens), and the notoriouis lateral-blast eruption is now known (as a stratovolcano) to be one of the most devastating kinds.  The slope of the terrain helped channel all the landslides, lahores and allowed the pyroclastic flow to (some speculate) race at the speed of sound.  The number most cited for the total energy released in the lateral-burst is 24 megatons, Hiroshima (Little Boy) was just 15 Kilotons.

Some interesting clips here -

Those Rosenquist pics really captured the lateral-blast.  It's still chilling to look at today...

Did you let 'em?

My little "orchard" is at the far edge of my property. They hit there first before coming into the yard proper. I shooed them off before they could destroy my veggie garden. I also have a bird-bath and they drank it halfway dry.

My property backs onto a county-owned greenbelt and I get all sorts of critters. I had a coyote two years ago. I've heard reports of bear but I've never seen one on my property.

What seems to be working for me is a "scarecrow" (2 boards in a Tee) with some aluminum pie pans and a bar of Irish Spring soap.

Which thought came first?

1)  How cute!

2)  Who would ever know?

My place is about a mile away from an indian reservation - that does big business in illegal fireworks. The noise is relentless for a month before until a month after. Last year on the 4th I took advantage of the "cover of fire" to test out the new drum I had purchased for my Saiga 12. I just took it out to the far end of the property and "relieved" it of 20 rounds. If anyone noticed they sure never said anything ;')
