Not sure what it is up here, but it sure isn't a few days.
Really depends on where you are in Florida. Soil types vary Greatly across the state. S W Coastal Florida is pretty much pure calcareous sand. West of I 75 Water sinks in real real quick. But you have to remember most house are build on fill dirt and still only 20 ft above mean tide level. Older homes like my father's was only 6 ft.

Rain has stopped for now but the winds are gusting strong. I am still in limbo because any thing I apply, has a chance of being washed away. I think we are look for an inch of rain a day on already saturated ground.
