Lowering (but not lowest ... yet)

Water in the swamp has dropped about two feet ...

From its summer peak (up in the pinelands.)

Water levels have dropped steadily this winter and spring, but we are still a foot higher than what I classify as deep drought.  As you can see on the photographic backdrop on the above graph, water is increasingly receding into the deepest holes, i.e. dry season refugia.

But don't be fooled:

The preserve isn't in deep drought yet.

Emphasis on yet!

The dry season is only now warming up (still has a good dozen weeks left.)
