#7--A Bellwether of the Weather

While September was relatively dry, we've certainly had a good amount of precipitation since then.  From October 1 through November 6, we received 5.35" of rain.

Around the golf course, some of the ponds slowly lose water into the ground, while others have springs feeding them, which keeps their water levels at capacity even under the driest conditions.  However, #7 pond falls somewhere in between these two extremes. 

When overall conditions are wet, #7 remains full, but during dry periods the water level will drop.  After being about six to eight inches below the overflow level for the past few months, this pond is back to capacity, and given all of the recent rain, will remain that way for some time to come.

So for a good idea of how the weather has been lately, you can always just take a quick look at #7.
#7, back to capacity.
