Walk into the dry side

There's the dry season ...

And then there's the "dry season."


The second half of the meteorologic dry season, say March through May, coincides with an equally parched landscape to impart the swamp with the full effect of drought. In this case, a shallow sliver of water is still holding on in the center of a cypress dome, but it was filmed in the beginning of May.

Even with today's rain my guess is, as the month draws to a close, that puddle is gone.

How much rain did you get yesterday?

Can you believe it: hardly any in the swamp but well over two inches in many parts of the Kissimmee just north of the Lake. (view radar map)

I was looking at the radar yesterday and it did appear the best rains missed you, but I was hoping in the end you would have gotten something that would hold you over for a week, apparently not. Bummer. I wish I could give you some of mine.
