The dream I have to say stands out, of any other dream and it's recurring. Plus I'm not from CA and wouldn't be on my mind, let alone, puting snow to it
In the dream though, the words (clever it was) but the words were transparent, covered the entire scene, so picture rolling down an avalanche, and it stops mid-way.
I'll never claim to have things exactly right, but between the dream and the feelings about earthquakes, it really seems like something comes from the east to the west and somehow it hits just at the right time there's another shift and it goes upward, from like the area or border of CA and Mexico. From there it's like a shattering glass menagerie outward and hits mountains.
It could just be a dream though. It's like one of those itches you can't scratch - ah lidocain
