She's Gonna Blow!

Bad news for people who live near Mount St. Helens.

I've never really understood why someone (and I'm thinking Naples, here) would build a city near a volcano. But I guess it makes about as much sense as building a home in New Orleans. Maybe a hurricane doesn't do as much damage as a volcanic eruption, but we get 'em more often.

That said, I wonder how long it will take for someone to blame the volcano's rumblings on Bush's failure to sign the Kyoto treaty. Any takers?

BYW, make sure you follow the link. The pictures of the mountain are gorgeous.

Update: Via Rusty Shackleford at MyPetJawa, this page has photos of the last time Mount St. Helens blew her top.
