Christy, this one is a beauty!

Incidentally, the NO-ID JI mama of your babies is thriving here as 
are both the SIB pollen sources.  We have had more than abundant rain-
-over eight "official" inches in May, and nearly seven so far during 
the month of July, both on the order of twice the normal rainfall for 
stadardized location.  Our own location seems to get even more than 
the reporting station.  The JI's and SIB's are in seventh heaven, as 
are water-loving forest trees and shrubs.  The TB's suffer, but 
recently have begun more rapid growth as we have been getting some 
sun and dry days between the storms.

The wet year hasn't begun to make up for five years of drought, but 
it's enough to get the rivers running more than full.  The surface 
profile is saturated but the accumulated deficit still shows in deep 

There seems to be a system circulating over the SW that is bringing 
in some moisture south of you.  Perhaps your dry phase is beginning 
to weaken?
