Sheet flow gets stifled

The concept on sheet flow ...

Is that water spreads out evenly everywhere.

OK Slough is slumping
well below its normal wet
season level

But the rise of the water is variable, too.

Cowbell Strand is in full summer saturation mode.

Meanwhile, OK Slough is just now barely getting wet.

As for the reason? 

Blame some combination of the residual effect from the deep spring drought, lack of recent rains in that area, and the nearby canal that is whisking water away at a healthy rate.
