So goes the Lake.
|This hydrograph shows Lake Okeechobee|
stage over the past two years relative
to it's historical stats (1993-present)
But in the big scheme of things Lake stage is still not high.
You may notice on the hydrograph above that this January's stage is almost at the identical level as last year with the big caveat that last year the Lake was on the way down (i.e. it dropped 4 feet from Nov 14 to Jul 15) whereas this year it's on the way up.
That being said, the Lake is higher now (15.1 ft) than it's summer peak (14.8).
