I always thought that the town of Ketchikan was there because of a chance meeting.
Early settlers were looking for a place to build and asked a Native American where they should settle. Knowing that he was going to be [treated] like all his brethren, he decided that at least he could have a bit of revenge. "O that stream right up the coast would be a fine place for your town...lots of fish". That evening in the tribal house there was at least a bit of laughter amongst all the dismay of the white arrival.
But as a connoisseur of rain and wind I recommend Saint Paul.
