there are very few dreams that I remember, but I have had 2 dreams regarding Tsunamis and I woke up so terrified. I was just standing looking at the ocean and a wall of water that was approaching. No one was running... we all knew we were gonna die. I always wake up right before it hits. Soooooo creepy.

oh man this is tough, buy I definitely think tsunamis! Although asteroids hitting the earth is way up there too! 2012 is really freaking me out.

I'd have to agree with all of you - tsunamis and earthquakes. Probably because I grew up in San Francisco, which is both earthquake-country and close to the water. I definitely think the tsunami of 2005 plays a lot into our fear of that, too. Thanks for responding!

Drought. Totally, because it would cause a number of other disasters. Like a tornado just happens and doesn't continue, but a drought would cause so much continued mental anguish. That's the pits.
