Being a blog about my inexplicable fascination with octopodes

Volcano Day

On this day in 1980, Mount St. Helens erupted in the Pacific Northwest. I'm a Seattle boy, born and raised, and so May 18th is forever etched into my brain as being Volcano Day. While it is true that National Geographic has an excellent hour-long documentary about the octopodes who continue to survive and flourish in the waters around the volcanic island of Stromboli, in the end I am going with the cool Octonauts toy today.
