Nice. But put a raindrop in Utica,OH,about 60 miles from Lake Erie and the raindrop ended up in Louisiana.[emoticon]

That is probably because it was in the Ohio River watershed not the Great Lakes. So it flowed down the Ohio to the Mississippi.

Really cool. We live about 20 miles south of Lake Michigan and 1 mile south of a "continental divide" where anything north ends up in Lake Michigan and anything around us ends up in the Mississippi River and in Louisiana.

If you pee atop Headwaters Mountain in PA, some will go out the St. Lawrence, some to the Chesapeake Bay and the rest to the Big Easy.

The Ohio North/South divide is not very far inland from Lake Erie. Water south of that would end up going into the Mississippi via the Ohio.

A few years ago I visited Great Basin National Park - worth the effort though a bit out of the way.

One of the things I learned was the size of the areas in the US that do not drain to oceans. Several areas, and some in strange places.

Great Basin Map

This does not mean everything drains into the Great Salt Lake or the Salton Sea - just that region has dozens, maybe hundreds of small basins that do not drain to the ocean.
