"at this moment, I honest-to-God think I'm dead..."
Chilling video from a man who "just had a feeling to go" visit Mount St. Helens the night before it erupted. This is up close video of the eruption as
well as his amazing commentary, what he's feeling, going through... the pure darkness of being surrounded by ash, burning his lungs.
"When I finally realized I had made it and I was gonna live, I just started laughing and screaming out loud - yelling at the Moon!"
I saw this live on the news as a kid... made a big impression!

I remember that film, too. Some of my colleagues heard the blast. We were about 150 miles away to the Northwest. None of the ash came our way, but it
totally covered the east side of the state. There are still huge piles of ash alongside Interstate 5.
