under the lava dome

Here’s a pic of Mt St Helens from today now the sun has come out. There is very little gas and very little seismic activity. However there’s lava building up at some stupid rate per day, something like 2 million cubic yards. I’m rubbing my eyes and wondering if that’s true, but the lava dome keeps rising and it’s really warm over there. If you google mt St helens webcam you’ll end up at the site and they give the blurb on current conditions. So no, it isn’t going to explode. It’s just going to be interesting but not a threat to human life. I mean unless you’re a nutbar and have to go take a look. Oops, melted my rappelling tools. Zorch!
