Less of a Boom

I didn't know that Mt. St. Helens was erupting, but it is. I don't know how I missed it, because it has been active since 2004. I guess when there isn't a ginormous explosion, it doesn't quite capture the modern news cycle. An any case, there is a 300 foot rock growing four to five feet a day. That's incredible, and a good reminder that the Earth moves even when we aren't looking.
