It's wet in the swamp to be sure,
But not "water in the pines" mid September like we'd normally expect.
It's too early to jump to conclusions yet. We have a couple days of high rain probability forecast as I type. Looking back in the historic record, the calendar years of 2007 and 2010 had notably lower-than-normal wet seasons. Those years didn't get their pines wet and -- not coincidentally -- each was followed by an early onset of dry season drought. Spring of 2008 was saved by a mammoth deluge in early February, but Spring 2011 had no such luck: deep drought took hold for over three straight months.
I'm holding out hope this recent rain pops us up in the pines.
Keep you fingers crossed!
