Stupid trees. They’ve been giving me fits. It all seemed very simple: volcano go boom, trees fall down, end of story. But we all know it’s more complicated than that. And, of course, this is the first time I’ve written a Mount St. Helens post with Dragon. But I eventually wrestled data into some semblance of order, extracted a story about the bizarre directions bits of a lateral blast can move in, and Dragon did an admirable job figuring out what I was talking about. Smiles all round.
So, anyone want to hazard a guess as to which direction the blast was coming from in this photo? It’s hard, I know, but you can do it!
You should’ve done brilliantly, especially if you, y’know, read the post. Stay tuned for the next time we return to Mount St. Helens, because that’s probably when I’m going to please the pyromaniacs in the audience. Heh.
