Are we molding yet?  This has been the wettest summer I can remember since moving to Marco Island 20 years ago.  I encourage people to visit the Everglades, and sometimes hand out a map that shows some of the easy to traverse dirt roads. 
This year, there are some spots deep enough to damage the underside of your car, and in some places water will flow over the road after a storm. 
Water can hide a hole or a wash-out, and it doesn't take much to float a car.  As little as six inches of moving water can be enough to float a small car!  So stay safe if you are caught in a storm, and enjoy the drama of our beautiful summer storms and sunsets.
