Which Florida water district is best?

Florida has five water management districts.

Here’s a look at the monthly rainfall in each one over the past two years.

The Suwannee (red dots) and panhandle (yellow triangles)
saw only sparse summer rains

The gray shading the background shows the Florida’s state-wide historical statistics for the past thirty years.  The dark gray band shows the normal range and the white line in the middle the median.

Now I see why the Suwannee is so low:

It missed out on its usual dose of summer rains.
