Does all that rain mean the wet season has finally begun?
The term is a meteorologically based, so in the technical sense the answer is yes. Although I might add that for the month of June rainfall levels are still way down.
|With only a week to go, June rains are falling short.|
But even at this suddenly wet spot the nearby box culvert is noticeably still. And standing water – though splashing high up (and over my boots) – was still a good foot or two below the high-water line that rings around all the cypress trunks.
For me the wet season means knee deep water in the domes …
And flowing water at the bridges.
|Can you see the high-water lines on the cypress trunks?|
The summer wet season still has lots of filling up to do before it kicks off the dust of the long winter and spring drought.
