That water is pretty crazy. we;ve been getting rain pretty good in Palm Beach county too but its draining off, Not stading around like that !

And just so you know, The Holeylands,Rotenberger, and Everglades areas down there are all still closed and they are writing tickets. You can access on foot to fish but not by vehicle it says on FWC's website.
