Defines functions create.ts

Documented in create.ts

#' Create a Time Series of daily streamflow observations
#' This function creates a daily time series formatted
#' for use with the functions in this package.
#' @param Flows Data.frame containing daily streamflow time series loaded
#'   with the \code{\link{read.flows}} function.
#' @param hyrstart define start month of hydrologic year. Defaults to 10 (October).
#' @return Returns a data.frame with year, month, doy, and hyear columns 
#'   appended to the original input data.frame.
