Flood fighters?

Talk about all the right rain ...

In all the wrong places.

The map above provides an estimate of rainfall amounts (in inches) over the past week in south Florida.
The past week has treated the Naples coast to drenching summer like rains.  Puddles, wet pavement and full canals abound.  A couple times riding home it was raining so hard I considered stopping to wait. 

Meanwhile just to the east in the Big Cypress Swamp wildfires continue to burn.

It's been a challenge convincing neighbors we're fighting a fire and not a flood.
