Loc: Yuba City, California
We had just flown into Hickham AFB days earlier for what would be one of the best tour's of duty in my career, at Marine Corps Air Station Kaneohe. Wow. Hard to imagine it was that long ago. I was 27 years old!<br><br>How far away were you living from the epicenter?<br><br><br>M i c h a e l (OFI)
I was 19 and had just quit the job Vernon Howell (aka: David Koresh) got me at a sheet metal manufaturing company. I worked there all of 6 weeks and it sucked. He loved it, so that proves he was a nutcase. Who knew then he would go down in infamy as a religious militant nutjob.<br><br>I started college at UTD that fall and landed a job as a t-shirt artist and got into a much easier lifestyle after that.<br><br>
Loc: Pacific NW, USA
No noise except a little thunder at first but not loud and after, when it grew light again, it was eerily silent no birds or anything. Never again have I ever heard it so silent. There are always birds.<br><br>oh yeah, that's going in the blog
I flew over it a couple years later on a flight from SFO to Seattle.<br><br>Could NOT believe how huge the hole was.... I was stunned to look down and see the remaining Mtn. <br>Man that was some explosion !!<br><br>IF I'd been as close as your pictures..... I'd needed clean underwear ! <br><br>David (OFI)
Wow, I had been hired for three months and the new post doc arrived with vials of dust. He and his wife drove through Canada on there way from California to Boston and had collected the dust from Mt St Helens during the trip.<br><br>27 years!!! I still work here!! <br><br><br><br><br><br>
