Protect it... by blowing it up

Wandering around a golf course north of Tracy today, I couldn't help but notice a series of concussions that sounded like small cannon fire.

Turns out, it's just a routine effort to save area levees.

To keep critters from turning the earthen berms into Swiss cheese, charges are set off that seem to keep the problem under control.

Protect the levees by blowing stuff up. Sounds about right.
