Mud and water

Here’s a scenic spot right by the side of the road …
Or in this case – Trail (as in Tamiami).

It’s a foot and a half deeper now,
Than March of last year (2009).

You may ask:
How exactly did I measure
Last year’s water level in that mud?

Turns out I didn’t need to lift a finger,
Or even muddy a boot:

South Florida Water Management District did it for me
In the form of a handy dandy nearby hydrologic monitoring station …

We call them “hydrostations” for short.

As good as it feels to finally be able
to put a “face to a name” …

Putting a “photo to the data” – for a hydrologist – is sort of the same.
