found myself floating over the West Coast of the lower 48 states of
America. I was up near Washington State looking down toward Mexico. I
saw columns of smoke blowing toward the East over the mountain ranges.
caption: Volcanoes of very high to low threat are scattered throughout
California, from the Oregon border (north) to Mexico (south). Other
older volcanoes in California are of less concern. California’s volcano
watch list is subject to change as new data on past eruptive activity
are collected, as volcanic unrest changes, and as populations in
threatened areas grow or decline.
They were smoke columns from eight volcanoes all erupting at
the same time. The nearest one was at the North end of the Cascades and
the farthest one looked to be near Mexico City - probably Popocatépetl.
The tops of these clouds were flattening as they were so high in the
I moved down and close to one of the volcanoes at the north end
of the Cascades. From the western side of the range, I saw cars filled
with people trying to get across the mountains to relative safety. I
could see the roads were slippery from the wet ash that was falling on
them. One car slipped off the narrow road and slid down the steep
embankment. They had no ropes to allow them to climb back up to the road
to continue on foot. I zoomed in on the car and saw it was my brother,
Glenn, and his family.
I awoke with a start and notified my brother of what I had
seen. He is a doctor and was firmly locked into the SeaTac area by his
practice. I wondered if my dream vision was from bad pizza and filed it
Years passed and in 2012 my brother did move his practice and
his family to Maine on the East Coast of the lower 48. For whatever
reason I was relieved he did move from the West.
Then on the 11th of August 2017, my wife, Holly, posted a news article entitled, "With 8 Threatening Volcanoes, USGS Says California Deserves Close Monitoring". Who knows... maybe it wasn't the pizza...
