Loop Road

Scenic loop

Recent road shoulder clearing …

Has made Loop Road more scenic than ever.

Looking west into Big Cypress Nat’l Preserve

All the winter water also adds a scenic touch. Bridges are still flowing at a healthy rate, unusual for this time of year.

Unnormal November

Normally in November …

The water table starts to slowly inch down.

This year it did a reverse course …

And jumped a half foot upward instead instead.

As for the “normal” year?

I’m not sure if such a thing exists, at least in south Florida.

But then again that’s what makes the water cycle fun.
