Drydown marches on!

Despite a dash of rain,

The seasonal decline of the water table marches on.

This chart shows where the Cowbell Fire ranks
seasonally and in terms of water depth
relative to past major wildfires


In fact, since the start of the Cowbell Fire ...

The preserve-wide water table has dropped about a half foot.


The good news about that rain was it fell right on the fire, not enough to put it completely out, but it did raise the water table about 4 inches.  Don't expect it to last.

A deep drydown season is still upon us.


And compared to past deep drydowns this one is still quite young.
