    Take a look here at the Accotink Creek data from right near the bridge under 495. This is one of my main tools for judging how wet the WF/Accotink area is. Click Here!

    Sorry still out of town last week and this week. New thread for the spring is now open. Right now with T-storms on for thursday the 6th, it’s not looking great. Hopefully the pattern changes.
