Florida Drought Map - May 15, 2012

Which explains why the little pond in my back yard is so low.

A water retention pond that's well below it's normal height as seen by the lack of grass visible below the normal water line.

The same pond where the water is up at the location where the prior water line was marked

For another perspective, the water level used to consistently reach all the way to the grate in the cement wall in this shot.

An even higher level of water in the pond

I'm half expecting to look out one day soon and see a bunch of fish cooking on dry land.
