Really getting bad here in PBC; this wetlands is now a parched, dried out, mud flat.

I've seen smoke in the sky  and been smelling fire all day from the fire in SE Georgia.

We just got a big storm through Jacksonville yesterday and the fires are still burning.  Not fun.

It is not good, my grass looks like shit.

it is awefull, but as green as the flagpond is, stomp a hole with your heal and at least you can get water to survive on for the next day or two

At least it's not on fire....yet.

Even the cypress heads are burning up here.

Natures reboot;here's how you get those beautiful white sand bottoms in the lakes and springs, along with open , unclutterd prairies and wood lands.

I'm starting to think about rock. Won't die, and then I won't have to mow it either.

Finally ... it is coming down good, but will take a number of these storms

to even make a dent in our low aquifer levels.

Gainesville had a really good hard rain Monday.  Not so much as a standing puddle Tuesday morning.  But it did cut down on the smoke from the Levy Co fires.

Nothing out west of Jupiter.....................rumbling north and west, but not a drop here

No rain here in Seminole county; I've been trying a garden since March, and even though I water it morning and evening, it's so dry that I can flood it with an inch of water, and it rolls off to reveal dusty dry dirt.

Ain't looking good for homegrown veggies!

We are getting are share of rain in Miami.  I can push the rain up North if you promise to send some of that cool/cold weather to us in NOV/DEC....

I see some on the radar moving north. I hope we get some more. We got over an

inch yesterday from two different storms.

Been raining pretty good in micanopy the last couple of days.  Had hail about 2 days ago.

Still dry as a bone here.

The local Everglades canoe trails have completely dried up and are covered with dense terrestrial types of vegetation and the alligators are congregating on the remaining mud flats like you see crocodiles do in those African nature films.

And the local ponds are drying out leaving the fish nowhere to go.

Where were these pics taken?  I grew up in PBC, and am now homesick in WhOrlando.

Small world, I grew up in PBC too... Was just there about 2 weeks ago for a cousins graduation at Summit Christian...

west of Jupiter, dry as a popcorn fart
Link Posted: 6/17/2011 4:01:08 PM EDT
All of my favorite fishing spots are drying up. Turning into mud holes. I'm sure we'll get some rain soon, once we start getting some tropical storms coming through.
Link Posted: 6/18/2011 2:20:44 PM EDT
We are getting some for the 4th day in a row. Looks like the Glades and Big Cypress

are getting some.
Link Posted: 6/19/2011 5:54:42 AM EDT
Tell that to my truck which was going through about 3 feet deep muck and mud last weekend in South Dade. My tries are 32" and the crap was at least as high as them.
