Mother Nature is showing winter an awful lot of love this year

Sandbag Central is starting up again on Thursday at 8 a.m. to make sandbags while the snow flies. They will be open 8 a.m. –  7 p.m. Thursday, through Saturday this week, then start up again on Monday the 22nd through Saturday.

If you would like to help, you can get in on the fun by checking where we need the most volunteers here and call 476,4000 to join in.

Thanks to the incredible volunteers, the city now has about 1,250,000 sandbags on hand. To be prepared for the worst, engineers have suggested we build an additional 500,000 bags for the city and Cass County is evaluating how many more they might need.

The recent wet snow and late melt is making for a very late crest for whatever flood level it turns out to be. The latest crest in the last 125 years was April 19th, the average crest is about April 11th.

These young leaders from Discovery tied them high and let them fly! Zach is a great twister and Larry on the right is a master at stacking beautiful square pallets. It was great working with this team last Friday.

Thanks to all the city staff and firefighters for keeping this operation running smooth. After the last shift Friday, we cleaned it all up ready to go again, which we are.

The power of one. This gentleman has come almost everyday to help out wherever he can. Thank you!!
