The year of Irma

After a long wet season,

Waters have finally crested in the swamp.

Make that a "high" crest.

Last time water was this high (up in the pines) for this long (4 months running) was 2005, i.e. the year of Wilma.

This year we'll be remembering as "The Year of Irma" even though it had a lot of help (i.e. 20 inches of June rainfall, and several other big rain events) along the way.

Welcome back Bob. I've been concerned about you and everyone else in South Florida, and Houston, and Puerto Rico, and California.
