USGS Stream Flows- Instant messages

If you use USGS for stream flow data (and don't have a fancy phone that has internet) you can subscribe to get daily or hourly text messages on any stream that USGS monitors. I thought this was cool so I thought I would post it. Or maybe I am just the last person to figure it out....anyways just go to this website if you are interested.

USGS WaterAlert

You can specify what discharge (cfs) or gage height (feet) values you are interetsed in.

I recently learned this too and find it very useful. I was going to start a thread on it but you beat me to it. You're not the last person to figure this out. I think it's a relatively new service. Amazing considering everything government is getting the cutback these days.
All you got to do is do it.
