It's been a bit since I've had any earthquake dreams, they seemed to have dropped off entirely for a while. Because I woke in the middle of the
night with the desire to pre-cook dinner, and power cleaned in the morning, I was pretty zonked from the sleep interruption & such by actual dinner
time. As soon as it was done, I shunted the kids the husband's way & went to bed. I woke up a little while ago, from a new earthquake dream that
didn't follow my Japan/Kamchatka/AK/PNW dream pattern at all--it was a very different location. In the dream, I was on the couch watching the boob
tube, flipping through the channels, and stopped on CNN. After a few minutes, they tossed up all of the breaking news graphics, and announced a 7.1 in
France, the epicenter just northeast of Paris. After a few more minutes of repeating the basic event info, they announced they had imagery from the
area, and it looked like WW2 all over again with the extent of 'quake damage. After a few more minutes, I couldn't look at the images on TV anymore
or listen to the anchor, so I went to the bedroom instead & laid down to calm down. I woke up IRL in pretty much the same position I'd laid down in
in my dream, and for a moment, remembered the 7.1 as actual fact. I checked the USGS real quick, surprised to see a 4.4 in Greece, but extremely
relieved to see nothing elsewhere in Europe.
Out of curiosity, I opened Google Maps and checked out the area where the epicenter was in my dream. If anyone is familiar with France, this was about
half the way between Pars, and Rouen, Magny-en-Vexin looks to be the closest town to where the epicenter would have been. I tried to zoom in as close
as possible while trying to keep it roughly the same size as the news' map.
I highly doubt this is in any way a prophetic dream, but probably closely related to my feeling that the eastern Mediterranean or Turkey is overdue
for a Big One. I'm not sure if any faults in France are even capable of producing that magnitude anyway. Either way, it was extremely disturbing,
especially in that I actually had a pinpointed epicenter, and not a vague area, for a change.
