Well...you'd think that finding sandbags, empty sandbags, would be easy here is the wet, sometimes flooding, Maritimes...right? Nope. The best that I can find locally is burlap at the Coop in Sussex, NB.

So my question is as follows: Anyone done a successful sandbag home using burlap?

Thanks

Willow
