    at St. Louis during T-Day travels and I was surprised to see how low the water was. There's a big sandbar under the 270 bridge that at times is just a little spot in the river but now is a huge swath! I think boats go around this part of the river through the Chain of Rocks canal, but the sandbar is still a good indicator of depth to me.

    Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. Throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. --Mark Twain
