Why the dry (and wet) season is wrong

At first glance, a wet and dry season would seem to imply ...

That the swamp has just two states.

Hydrographs are helpful, but there is nothing
like the advanced cornbread model (shown above)
to really make the water cycle click
In place of these two opposing states,

Is actually an dynamic shift between varying degrees of wetness and dryness.


For example, we are currently in the part of the dry season that should be wet but is actually drier than usual thanks to the preceding wet season ending on a dry note.

(For further clarification see the chart above.)
