There’s a lot cfs talk being thrown around as rivers and creeks swell with recent storms.

It occurred to me that maybe not everyone knows that CFS means. I didn’t when I first started covering water.

Even if you know it means “cubic feet per second,” how does that help you understand what’s happening in local water ways?

So, I made a Doodly to try and explain it. It’s my first ever attempt at this so it’s admittedly rudimentary. But hopefully it will help!
