when I turn on a hose and leave it on the ground the water soaks into the
ground. If a deep puddle forms after a rain the water in the puddle dissappears
at a rate faster than it evaporates. Why doesn't the water in a river just
sink into the soil like water does everywhere else excect lakes and oceans?
