Sandbagging

So where does one go to get sandbags? And where do you go to fill them up without raiding sand from the beach?

The wife is worried about the garage getting wet with water by Ernesto. When there's big rain, a little water sometimes makes it past the garage door seal into the garage. Nothing that doesn't dry up in a few hours though. She likes to be conservative and on the safe side so now I'm looking for sandbags.

Now that I'm thinking about it, I think I can solve the garage water problem if I just angle the eavestrough downspout away from the house a little more. That reminds me, I should probably get up there and make sure the eavestroughs are clear before all the rain starts.

Update: Postscript's Stormwatch blog provided me with the answer.

City of Charleston fire department has sandbags if you need them
