Things you can count on

There's three things you can count on in the swamp:

One is our annual spring drought.

The hydrograph above shows the rise and fall of water relative to the center of a cypress dome in Big Cypress National Preserve from 2009 to present.  The  gray band  shows the long-term (i.e. 25-year) range and the  dotted white line  shows the long-term median.

Caveat:  Except in the soggy El NiƱo dry season of 2010

As for the other two I'm still thinking ...
