First the good news:
Timely rains helped extinguish recent wildfire.
|Rain sometimes wets the surface,|
but doesn’t make it to the water table below
The bad news:
That same rain didn’t budge the water table one bit.
The water table is still 3 feet below the center of the slough.
And by the way, that matches the same level of the nearby canal (see above).
We may have a whopper of a big rain day on the way.
We’ll see how the water table responds to that.
