Spring "nose dive"

Don't blame it on the plants,

But their springtime transpiration is partly the cause.

March is the month that
the water table starts to nose dive.

As pretty as the green trees look.

They also consume a lot of water.


Currently, the water table is almost touching down at the swamp's typical low water mark.

The catch is that usually happens in mid May.


Last I looked at the calendar that's a full two months away.

Or in other words, it could be a deep (and long) spring drought.
