I visited my mother yesterday and we talked about the tremendous recent rains. We sat inside to chat because the mosquitoes were so bad outside.
This is about how our conversation went:
Jacqui: “I just took a picture of another seven inches in my rain gauge.”
Sandy: “Yes, I have dumped out over fifteen inches of rain in mine since that tropical disturbance…” (6-3-22)
In spite of all this rain, the St Lucie River/Indian River Lagoon doesn’t look too bad. Here are aerials taken by my husband, Ed Lippisch, and friend, Scott Kuhns, on June 11, 2022 to show what the area looks like. The St Lucie itself does look dark brown and there is a plume from runoff, but overall it is “not too bad…”
We will continue to be your eye in the sky documenting the St Lucie River/Indian River Lagoon.
