The water level is up about a foot, still about 2 feet lower than normal for this time of year, but this is actually perfect for boating and beaches. There are beaches on the islands. The trap islands are just covered. The water is high enough to boat without worrying too much.

The water is continuing to warm, and if this trend continues - we will be swimming by Memorial Day weekend!
