Mt. St. Helens
It wasn't until I looked at the date I had written in the post below that I remembered.
Today is the anniversary of the eruption of Mt. St. Helens, 29 years ago.
It is still active today, and if the weather is clear, you can see it "live", via the Mt. St. Helens VolcanoCam. I just checked and saw nothing but gray... must be in the clouds.
I remember our house shaking from the concussion of the blast, although - fortunately - no ash came this way. What you can't see, in the famous photo, is that a huge portion of the mountain on the left (north) side has been completely blown away.
