Swamp's dipped down (but's still up!)

The swamp is still up ...

But it's also dropped down in the past few weeks.

This calendar chart shows the history
and duration of surface water flooding in
Big Cypress Nat'l Preserve.

The meteorologic rainy season
ends in the middle of October.

That puts the wetting front at the edge of our pine islands.

Or in other words, a good half foot in the dwarf cypress prairies.
