Tired of the August rain? Well, August is over and the first day of September gave us a day to dry out before the heavy rains of the fall begin.
According to the National Weather Service, Juneau got nearly five inches more rain than usual for the month of August. And the daily high temperature was about five degrees below normal. National Weather Service meteorologist Rick Fritsch has the data.
- Christopher Strawn testified he walked home with his dog and was going to sleep when Brandon Cook was shot and killed on Oct. 20, 2015.
- Gov. Walker and Lt. Gov. Mallott both spoke, but is was the 17-year-old keynote speaker who brought the room to its feet with applause and cheers.
- If confirmed, Tara Sweeney would be the first Alaskan to serve in the position. Her nomination has Alaska’s U.S. senators literally cheering.
- The pioneer road being built in West Douglas will be extended another 1.1 miles. This after the Juneau Assembly authorized the use of $600,000 in federal money from a long-dormant dredging project.
