Tortoise and Hare

If south Florida’s water cycle was a fairy tale,

Which parable would it resemble best?

South Florida’s water cycle resembles the tortoise and hare

Imagine the Hare as rainfall:

It sprints off to an early lead all summer wet season long …

Racing swamp stage up into the pinelands for an early fall peak.

Or in other words – the dry season begins.

Now enters the Tortoise (evaporation).

That shell-covered competitor has been slowly inching along all summer long,


But it’s only when the hare falls asleep.

That the tortoise can finally catch up.
