Link of the Week – Sandbagging

October 9, 2018

Seems like there has been a lot of flooding these days due to Mother Nature.  Just last year, my area was hit hard with flooding thanks to Hurricane Harvey. Many are still recovering. Central Texas is seeing flooding right now as rivers rise. And the Florida panhandle is facing Hurricane Michael this week. Rain-making events lead to potential disasters. And excessive development leaves nowhere for the water to go except inside homes and businesses. So this week’s link, courtesy of The Art of Manliness, might be useful—how to make a sandbag wall.
