Mount. St. Helen's blew on this date 36 years today. And a lot of folks remember the time pretty well. For me, it was meant spending some time with my folks.

I attended school in Great Falls so I was a junior in high school. That meant that I had to try to find things that I had in common with my parents. It was at least 3 days that we were locked inside together. There were no home video game systems, or smart phones. And we didn't own a VCR. So, we played a lot of Monopoly and Crazy Canasta.

What are your memories of that time here in Billings? And how much ash landed here?
