The fall at Juneau Airport, where I’m a controller,  generally sees pretty gross days, rain and lots of wind.  One day we had six miles of visibility and winds of more than 25 knots and gusts more than 30.  I was working a Coast Guard helicopter out and it occurred to me that I never really see those guys when the weather was nice.  I figured I'd ask: 

Tower: CG 6043 frequency change approved, you guys have time for a question?

CG pilot: Frequency change approved and go ahead

Tower:  You guys ever fly in nice weather?

CG pilot: No.
