Here' a tip for filling sandbags if you're doing it solo ... They sometimes leave a few shovels near the pile of sand. But using a shovel is more of a two-person operation (one to hold the bag open, the other to shovel). A fast way to do it yourself is to use a 2-quart Rubbermaid juice pitcher, or similar.
