Sweet Sam, Bob Montanaro’s dog,, stands at the trailhead to the Oslo Riverfront Conservation Area, wondering about the wet conditions. This picture was taken in early September of 2016, a year with “usual” summer rainfall.
Every year is different, and this year has been unusually dry. Water levels in the Indian River Lagoon (IRL) have been low. Will there be the usual seasonal fall high tides in the IRL this year? Will Hurricane Ian bring us much-needed rain?
