It appears that you are using ASCE 74 which is a good reference document.
Be aware that when the IBC hits the streets, there will be a new design
standard for seismicity based on seismic spectral ordinates.  I would
reference the seismicity that the IBC will use which is basically the same
as the 1997 NEHRP Provisions.

I would also use the loading combinations in the ASCE 74.  Other pertinent
codes are the NESC and IEEE 693.

I am in the process of developing  design standards for a client's future
capacitor bank foundations located in the Mojave Desert.  I am aware of the
seismic zone 4, ice zone 2 ( 50 year radial ice thickness of 0.4 inches) and
high wind zone considerations however I would appreciate some input.  Thank
