Drought-dug hole

The meteorologic wet season …

May start like a “flip of a switch.”

This year’s water table touched down
as deep as it gets.  The only question now
is how long it will last.

But climbing out of such a deep drought …

Usually takes a good couple weeks.

Saturation in the swamp lags behind the sky.

It’s more like a “dimmer light.”

Record drought?

How dry is the swamp?

Answer: As dry as it gets for mid April.

Last year this time,
the water table was about
a foot and half higher

As a result,

Alligators are flocking to canals.

The same canals, I might add, that over-drain the swamp.
