Historic low?

There's still water in the swamp to be sure ...

But for the end of November this is about as dry as it gets.

Last time the water this low in November (2010) ...

Was similarly a year where the mesic pines (as indicated in purple) stayed high and dry all summer long and the following spring plummeted into an especially deep and long drought (spring 2011).

The good news: there's still water in the domes!
