Gates put glades on "hold"

Shark Slough is not yet full to the brim ...

But its ridge and slough portion is fully wet.

Can you see how this spring the sloughs stayed wet,
but last spring how they went dry?
The gates that feed it aren't scheduled to open to July.

Peak water conditions, under the normal year, are still four months and 12 vertical inches away.

The tropical wave (likely the D storm of the season) developing could bring you more rain than you want depending on the track. Some model estimates of over 10" in spots in the next 5 days. I hope you don't get that.

It's definitely been rainy in our corner of southwest Florida. Off and on rain, although today for a good part it was downright steady.
