Interestingly, looking through my logs for UDP 1434, I saw a sequential
scan of my subnet like so:

Jan 16 08:15:51 206.176.210.74,53 -> x.x.x.1,1434 PR udp len 20 33 IN
Jan 16 08:15:51 206.176.210.74,53 -> x.x.x.2,1434 PR udp len 20 33 IN
Jan 16 08:15:51 206.176.210.74,53 -> x.x.x.3,1434 PR udp len 20 33 IN

All from 206.176.210.74, all source port 53 (probably trying to
use people's DNS firewall rules to get around being filtered).

After that, I saw nothing until the storm started last night from many
different source IPs, which was at Jan 24 21:31:53 PST for me.
