The weather was so warm today it was like spring. We all went into Portland for Sunday breakfast at a great little cafÃƒÆ'Ã‚Â© in the northwest called Besaws. It's so popular there is always a crowd of people waiting on the sidewalk and the cafÃƒÆ'Ã‚Â© brings out coffee and waffles for those who are waiting. And it's worth the wait. The weather was so clear we had a perfect view of Mt. St. Helens which is steaming again. The news says the earthquake activity is increasing and the dome is growing. I have never lived so near an active volcano.
