This is one of our favorite WWII photos. Taken in 1945, it shows thousands of troops pulling in to NY Harbor aboard the Queen Elizabeth. If this was 2016, there would be thousands of family members there waiting, but back in 1945, train travel was expensive and arrival ships (and dates) often changed.

Mount St Helens erupts in May 18, 1980. It was the deadliest and most economically destructive volcanic event in the history of the United States. Where I lived at the time, we received up to 3" of the ash. The sky was pitch black and everything was covered in the ash. There was NO color of anything, with the exception of the color gray.
