Need some rain!

Postby BigBend » Tue May 08, 2007 6:32 pm

In north Florida, all of our lakes are dropping jurastically. Its hard to even launch a boat anymore. Need a mud motor to get around. Anybody else going through the same thing?

The water is very low down here also, just look at the pictures in the mudfest thread. We have only had one little rain in over a month. If you get any extra rain send some this way.

Not Necessarily...

Birds will be concentrated to those areas holding water, and if your lucky enough to own some water (or that you can pump water into..hehehe) you can have your own little paradise

You can have some of ours. We have had rain pretty steadily for about two weeks and it doesn't look like its going to stop for a while.

Send it on down, we've had over 200 wildfires in the state, 24 in my county alone. One active fire now is over 7600 acres
