How long between flooded towns to cutting does it take?

Watching the news about Florida underwater again. So after the 3 feet of water goes down how long before you cut again?

It really depends some places drain so fast it could be 3ft under water and then fine to mow in a few days some places it will be a mud fest for the entire season. My back porch floods in about 6-8 inches of water in a 30 minute storm but I could mow it the next morning and be fine. Most of Florida has pretty sandy soil. Some parts have a clay soil which would take a long time to dry up or more organic soil.

Florida is flat so nothing drains, but the soil is basically sand so once the water is gone its not muddy.
