La Palma volcano (Canary Islands) activity update: Yellow alert for Cumbre Vieja Volc
#76
Strangest thing about the copious ash fall from Mount St Helens was it changed the soil. At our tree farm, as we called it, in the Coast Range the red clay stained everything but after the eruption the clay eventually turned brown. I remember cleaning off a shed roof about 30 years after the eruption and under 6 inches of Fir needles I hit a solid 2 inch layer of sticky gray St Helen's ash that hadn't washed away (low pitch roof)

After the eruption my mom was making a not to bad looking pottery glaze from the ash. It had a purplish hue (her favorite color:) I wonder how many people round here still have a jar of it?
Oh, where are the snows of yesteryear!
