My sister used to live in Snoqualmie, Washington, so when it came up in my anagram yesterday it made me wonder what was going on there. My anagram was mentioning a volcanic eruption and a connection so I looked up Mt Ranier which I knew was previously right outside my sister’s kitchen window: http://www.nationmaster.com/encyclopedia/Mount-Ranierand got the coordinates, 46° 51′ 11.88″ N 121° 45′ 35.64″ W
For some reason I was feeling there was a connection between Mt Ranier and Mt. Redoubt (which I saw on CNN’s site this morning, that it might blow) and didn’t realize there was a Mt. Redoubt in Alaska and one in Washington.
The volcano in question is in Alaska. Still, I knew there was something to the Washington connection.
On a topographical map I looked up Mt. Redoubt in Washington.N 48.97852 and W -121.28423. I didn’t think it was in the right spot for the connection I was feeling but kept in mind there must be something. I did notice the name “Madison” popped out at me as I looked at a topographical map though, and saw the name was actually Port Madison at coordinates 47° 43′ 30.76″ N, 122° 31′ 32.87″ W .
It’s been a while since I had Snoqualmie Falls oatmeal. Buying the Quaker Oats this week must have reminded me what I’ve been missing.
