Well, having gone down for the opening day of the State Fair in Palmer (mind you, there are several ‘State Fairs’ in Alaska by claim), there has been quite a few people who now have information about how the changing climate is effecting wildfire danger, how flooding damage can be prepared for and mitigated, and what to prepare for any evacuation that suddenly is required. Meeting many people, I was able to converse with many from out of state as well as residing in Alaska about basement flooding, mold issues, defensible space of vegetation around a home, etc…. If you haven’t gotten to the fair yet, stop by the 4H building on the red moose trail!
