the Missouri River is vert low at 13.6 FEET today

Phone

edit86,340 ft³/s (about 5.5mph) roughly 25.6 million gallons per minute.

HEY?? What happened to my edit of the edit? I SERIOUSLY DON'T Know if  the 25.6 million gal thing is true. I'm much better with a fishing rod than I am with a calculator THAT SOUNDS LIK A HELL OF A LOT OF WATER. WOULD 2.56 MILLION GALLONS PER MINUTE SOUND MORE REALISTIC - - SOMEONE SMARTER THAN ME DO THE CYPHERIN

Mark Twain was the cry of the leadsman on a river boat who would continually plumb the depth using a marked rope (Twain being 2 fathoms - 12 foot) ensuring safe passage & the boat not to run aground!!

Think of elf and safety all those knots rubbing some matelots hands raw and him gettin a sore throat on top shouting ,no he had a nice machine to tell him the depth and a chalkboard to write down the depth shown to the captain by a powder monkey in his day job.Us brits were posh in the good old days when saying seamen didn't raise a smirk and hello sailer didnt imply anything but a greeting

Queensland, as far as I know, is the only place on the planet where 2 rivers join to make 1 creek; the Georgina and the Thompson rivers make Coopers Creek. And, for a few years, are dry.

All,

let me see if i can say this correctly. in wyoming along the divide that sends water east or west the NORTH TWO RIVER splits off into pacific creek and atlantic creek. each creek then flows into the ocean for which it is named

i don't know when this happened or how anyone could know but it's a big deal tourist attraction in wyoming - as much as anything can be a big deal in wyoming

(i'm trying chesters1 method) - shifting from capitals - maybe capitols back and forth to lowercase is simply a mountain of effort
