Hail to the sandbaggers!

Fargo, North Dakota is being protected from rising floodwaters by an energetic band of volunteers who are filling and stacking sandbags to construct temporary dikes. Among those volunteers is Sarah Mayo, a junior at North Dakota State University, who joins John to tell us how things are looking in her hometown.

Here's a CNN iReport of the flood:

If they had put in the DIVERSION that Winnipeg had for such contingencies (they voted against it the last time the Red River overflowed it's banks), there would not be anything to report. The farmers won't give up the arable land for it! Dummies!
