Duck season Saturday. That explains the mud boats and all the gunfire.

I guess the water is right for duck AND manatee hunting!

Still got a long way to go, but yeah, it is FINALLY going down everywhere. Maybe still about 4’ high for this time of year, but it’s dropping in the ditches, in the creeks, on the river... everywhere!

It’s finally down low enough that the rate of fall can be be estimated at about 6”/week til it bottoms out or rainy season, whichever comes first.
