Consider the case of the photo point below.
In the first photo you can see the cypress knee is dry.
But can you see in the background that the pond apple forest is dry, too?

Now compare that to what happened after the storm.
The cypress knee is still dry, yes, but can you see now how it stands at the water's edge? The pond apple in the background is flooded with a few inches of water.
Rainfall has a way of lingering in the swamp!
