It’s been brought to our attention that several mountains south of the border have been actively squabbling over the past few days.
It all erupted when Forbes published an article about there being 40 earthquakes in the vicinity of Mount St. Helens since Jan. 1, sparking a closer look at what the heck’s going on down there.
Here’s what Mount St. Helens had to say about that:

It’s all part of a Twitter beef that’s been simmering since November, when Mount Baker lost its cool.
We stratovolcanoes are the highest mountains in the state of Washington... besides @MtStHelensWA because he's a loser.— Mt. Baker (@MtBakerWA) November 17, 2017
Our local volcano, Mount Garibaldi near Squamish, has so far been dormant, not piping up to participate because it doesn’t have a Twitter account… yet. And our local ski hills (@Mt_Seymour, @GrouseMountain and @CypressMtn) are too polite and Canadian to dip their toes into this fiery conversation.
Check out more on the squabble HERE.
UPDATE: Since posting this story, we seem to have angered the volcano gods.
What kind of slanted news is this? My role in this debate was significantly downplayed in this article. I would like a word with your editors.— Lake Superior (@LakeSuperior) January 8, 2018
I think they perfectly portrayed your role. :)— Mt. Baker (@MtBakerWA) January 8, 2018
Although, they could have added the part where you tried to convince people you were a volcano.— Mt. Baker (@MtBakerWA) January 8, 2018
@MtStHelensWA is such a #tease. We volcanoes all know that she was taking credit for tectonic Earthquakes that had very little to do with her magma. #OverHyped. There are plenty of volcanoes down here in Oregon, us included, that could easily outdo her!— Three Sisters Volcanoes (@3SistersVolcano) January 8, 2018
We're actually scared. Go back to sleep! 😴😴— Vancouver Courier (@VanCourierNews) January 8, 2018
I’m wide awake baby! https://t.co/xgW2M8XpUH— Mt. St. Helens (@MtStHelensWA) January 8, 2018
At least we’re consistent. Ya’ll are up and down worse than the stock market https://t.co/uFN8mbJ4Mt— Mt. St. Helens (@MtStHelensWA) January 8, 2018
