    This year we are prepared though. We started filling sandbags on March 1, and have over a million filled and distributed throughout the neighborhoods. The river is scheduled to crest much sooner than we were expecting, but the city should be safe up to 40 feet.

    Much more organized and less panic than last year - mostly because we were proactive.

    Amazing how Fargo area people get stuff done...last year everything happened so quick and they worked day and night to sandbag everything. This year, everything was more organized and they were turning away volunteers. 30 people from the mpls area took a bus to Fargo to help and had nothing left to do when they got there today lol
