Water in 2a everglades going down again

Post by newoldglory » Wed Aug 07, 2013 9:12 pm

The water here at Old Glory is dropping again and the turtles are laying again. They're digging in mud but laying eggs. I've also noticed scratches on the female gators. Maybe they are having sex again since the water is going down and it's still summer. :scratch: I've released 167 turtle hatchlings so far and have another 157 to release when I go frogging Friday nite. :toothy7:

We ran out last night to do a little work on the camp from Lox road and the water looked up maybe six inches at the ramp.

The water is still dropping, down at least 12" here at Old Glory. :cheers: This deep water is sucking up a lot of gas from these airboats. :shock: Makes me wonder if the oil companies own a part of Mother Natures stocks. :scratch: :lol: :lol: :lol:
