The water level is VERY low now as seen in this shot taken in front of the first pavilion on the right leg.

South Florida's water supply has reached a critical level amid the driest November-through-May dry season on record, as vast swaths of the Everglades are now dry to the touch and Lake Okeechobee, South Florida's backup water source, has fallen below shortage level.

But there's also hope - rains in recent days and a wet weekend forecast for South Florida may signal an earlier-than-expected arrival of the rainy season.
