(1) Ten miles to the north where even the low lying pond apple swamps have gone dry: water barely hanging on only in the deepest dry season refugia pools.
(3) Or thirty miles to the west, where lawns in Naples remain lush despite its local airport (APF) receiving less than an inch of June rain to date. (June is our rainiest month, with a long-term 10 inch average).
