Why Plant Fest in August is a bad idea in Florida

Learn to swim.
Would not have been the first either.

I think right before the rains come is best so you have shallow water depth and good viewing. Not that Florida did not need this rain to wash out things and replenish the drought, but heck, that is a LOT of rain. I'm talking "Where's Noah?".

Now way to see plants in this(the rivers get very cloudy and deep).
Good luck to all that live there.

Well here in Gainesville it's not too bad as of right now. It has been raining for about 2 days straight with small dry spots as the rain bands pass through. The parking lot outside my condo was flooded and we had to park in other areas, but other than that it's just been wet - really wet!

There is a lot of flood damage on the East Coast. Melbourne got hit the hardest with some areas reporting 24-30" of rain.

What's the matter Tom, afraid of a bit of water?
