How is The Big Cypress unique from the Everglades?
Add to the list it is more susceptible to drought.
While the Everglades to the east is still holding surface water in its expansive sloughs, the water table in The Big Cypress is almost two feet below its less abundant low lying cypress domes and sloughs. That means that pretty much the entire swamp is dry.
Chance of rain is 40 percent every day this week.
Soaking in season appears to be under way.
