Meals with Midgi: Bring on the rain

Wed, 08/19/2015 - 3:12am
Well, it's almost fall here in Juneau. I am reminded of that axiom, "when the fireweed has turned to cotton, summer time will be forgotten." The fireweed is definitely turning and Mother Nature did her part with the weather, giving us a few days of rain. Serious rain. Like the rain that makes one want to cuddle up with a glass of wine and a good book. Alas, this is not the case for many of us in the visitor industry. The rain doesn't keep us from sharing our amazing city with visitors. Our motto at my company is "Rain or Shine, We Dine." If we didn't do things in Alaska because of the rain, we'd never do anything.
