OH MY GOD!
If you kayak or canoe this is the grail.

If you paddle, but haven't upgraded to 10.4 this widget is reason enough to upgrade now.

If you paddle, but use a Windows machine, this widget is reason to throw it out the window and buy a Mac.

I live in Arkansas and there the widget report five day historical stream-flow data to present for 127 reporting stations in Arkansas. You select which stations you are interested in which states and they are available in a pull down menu.

This is definitely the cleanest widget I have seen yet, and for paddlers, this is definitely the best!!! It's incredible.

I don't have 10.3 but this program sounds wicked awesome for all kayakers and boaters out there.

The first review is now out of date as the developer has subsequently changed the description to say what USGS means, for the billions outside the US who'd have no idea what USGS stands for!

Sorry, but not a single one of my 'favourite rivers' is included in this widget.

When will US-based people realise there is a whole world outside of America and say "THIS IS USELESS FOR PEOPLE OUTSIDE THE USA" in their product descriptions?

The description does say that it gathers information from the USGS - the US Geological Survey.

At least the developer listens to these comments - since the first 'review' he's re-written the description to say what USGS actually stands for!

No, the MacUpdate admin (me) changed the description.
