I just looked out my office window at sheets of blowing snow. I'm blocks from a rising river being held back by millions of pounds of sandbags put in place by thousands of volunteers in North Dakota and Minnesota.


I rarely write a food safety column with advice that I hope people do not need to follow. This is one of those columns. As soon as I finish writing it, my boots and gloves will go on, and I'll join the flood fight.
