Ever had the sense that you’ve been here before?
That’s because you have!
It’s called the water cycle: it goes round and around.
Above is an animated graph showing the rise and fall the swamps in Big Cypress Nat’l Preserve, from June 2008 to June 2009.
Last year’s big news makers were (1) Fay and (2) the droughty winter/spring dry season that followed.
The headline grabber so far this year is the unusually wet May.
So, yes, it’s always the same, but each year is different too.
That’s what keeps us watching!
