It does make it nice that one can much easier access places that normally one can't. Other than that it is a problem.

We need rain real bad, rivers and cedar swamps really starting to dry up.

Agree, I've been keeping an eye on a vernal pond where Pine Barrens treefrogs and some other interesting stuff breeds, and it was very close to dry on Thursday. I'm sure by now the sphagnum looks like a dried sponge. Sad.

Wish I could like that twice. I'd like to see an inch a week for the next few weeks to bring it back to normal, I just hope it doesn't swing the other way with a saturated August and then tropical storm remnants on top (what happened with Ida last year and also with Irene). But any help right now is a blessing.
