Re your query about "symptoms": not physically as such, but had one heck of a powerful dream. Yes folks, I know, dreams are just dreams. Sure.
This one ranks up with the one I reported some days back. Very vivid. However the scene was different. This time I was in some kind of hotel or resort
place near the beach. It was night and very late as most folks had already gone to bed.
I was standing there on the sand, by some small boats that were (oddly) stacked vertically on-end with their sterns resting on the sand, bows
touching. (Imagine a teepee shape but made up of four or five boats. These were maybe 12-footers or something like that; just little boats people
could take out for light recreation.) Anyway, I was looking out to see and watching the surf rolling in and then in the distance I saw a wave that was
just building and building.
After a few seconds I realized that I was watching an approaching tsunami. I rushed back into the building that was just a few yards behind me over
the sand and began yelling, "Tsunami! Tsunami! Wake up, wake up! A tsunami's coming!"
Then the first wave arrived and water began flooding in through the open main doors and across the floor. I headed for the nearest stairs and as I ran
up them I repeated my call and also said, "We have to get upstairs!"
Okay then we get a perspective change and once more I was out on the sand, but with a few other people. Again, we watched a wave approach but this was
a bigger one than the first one. Much, much bigger.
I recall we just ran for our lives.
The last thing I remember that made coherent sense was the small boats were now all floating aimlessly.
There was some other stuff that went on after that but it was very bizarre and much more "dream-like". For example, as one wave came roaring in, we
seemed to watch it as if it were a digital image and an older woman (who seemed to be an expert on waves) was pointing out the extremely long
wavelength the wave had and explaining that this was mainly why tsunamis were so dangerous. (In fact, their long wavelength is
a major factor
in their destructiveness.)
Another weird part was that even while one of the waves was hitting I and a whole bunch of people were in a room (upstairs I think) and there was a TV
on, which suddenly broke into its regular program to flash news of the tsunami. Map of west coast US, showing where the wave/s was/were hitting. And
something really odd: the map also showed a place in central western China with a flashing red marker to indicate that there had been a massive quake
there and this had caused the tsunami. I actually remember commenting that this was complete nonsense as a quake many miles inland couldn't cause a
tsunami like this. I even commented that they were not telling us the real story. But that's probably just my conspiracy side coming out...
The reason I'm posting this is because as far as I recall, this is the first very specific dream I've had about a tsunami. I've never had anything
quite like this before, not even before or after the previous major tsunamis off Bandah Aceh or Japan.
Query: do any members know of a place on the west coast of the US with a resort or whatever where they stack small boats as I've described? It's not
something I've ever seen in reality so I'd like to know.
Well I'll leave it there. Have to go and earn my living.
