Posted this over on our instagram page earlier today, but figured I'd share it here as well. Processed Sentinel-2 satellite imagery.

Side-by-side images of the Missouri boot heel around Ten Mile Pond, 12/6/21 compared to 12/1/22.

Blues = moist soil & shallow water (puddles, flooded fields, moist soil)
Black = deep water (lakes, rivers, etc.)
Green = dry plant life

Astounding how dry it is this year, compared to last.

Thanks @riverrat09 I’m gonna save that link down. Good info.

I find the website useful. Especially when trying to remember what previous years conditions were like, when my memory can mislead me sometimes.

I can't remember all the details of their index without looking it up. But I believe it is a measure of a combination of rainfall, river levels, soil moisture, and maybe another thing or two. Somewhere on the website they have the information.
