    Mount St. Helens is getting pretty darn cranky. Take a look at the progression in these seismograph readings:

    Nice and Calm

    Getting Noisy

    Holy constantly rumbling ground, Batman!

    Here's a live image of Mount St. Helens that updates every 5 minutes. If you're reading this and instead of a serene mountain scene you see ash and molten rock, I told you so.

    There's a CNN news post though, the entire lava dome has raised up an inch and a half:

    Scientists are saying it will only affect things within a 3 mile radius. They're more worried about the bowling ball sized rocks that it may shoot out into the air and the ash which may cause problems with air traffic.

    I submitted the story to Slashdot and got it posted on the front page about an hour ago. :)

    I put a link to my car site in my name, not thinking about the fact that I would slashdot my own site if it got posted. :D

    its not going to blow. I live in oregon and everyone around here says its a load of crap. Who cares if it went up a inch? If it does blow i hope the whole thing goes so i dont have to look at it anymore. That and i hope all of washington gets covered with ash:p

    i live in spokane, and my geology teacher is all over it.

    they break the danger down into 5 levels, 5=blown up, 1=meh

    it went from a 2 to a 4 in two days

    that means its supposed to blow up again within the next 2 or 3 days.



    i want this explosion to be huge, i want ash over here again.

    Maybe it'll blow, maybe it won't. You just never know.

    Probably won't affect me though, because I live about 80-120 miles away and the ash won't cover the state like it did last time.
