Is it or isn't it?

Does all that rain mean the wet season has finally begun?

The term is a meteorologically based, so in the technical sense the answer is yes. Although I might add that for the month of June rainfall levels are still way down.

With only a week to go, June rains are falling short.

But even at this suddenly wet spot the nearby box culvert is noticeably still. And standing water – though splashing high up (and over my boots) – was still a good foot or two below the high-water line that rings around all the cypress trunks.


For me the wet season means knee deep water in the domes …

And flowing water at the bridges.

Can you see the high-water lines on the cypress trunks?
The summer wet season still has lots of filling up to do before it kicks off the dust of the long winter and spring drought.
