Everglades are still pretty wet ...
Sloughs in many areas are still holding water a foot deep.
Compare that to Big Cypress Nat'l Preserve where water in the middle of its cypress domes is a foot below the ground. What makes The Big Cypress droughtier still is that it's proportion of low-lying ground (i.e. strands, marshes, domes) are much smaller than the wide expanse of ridge and slough landscape that dominates the glades.
Water levels in the glades are currently normal for this time of year.
Meanwhile the swamp next door is a foot below normal for mid April.
