Restaurant preps for big storm

Ashland, Ore. — The upcoming storm is concerning some business owners in downtown Ashland and the Ashland plaza has had plenty of flooding issues in the past.

Mix Bakeshop in the Ashland plaza is taking every precaution to assure the weather doesn’t impact their business, like it has in the past. At Mix Bakeshop, employees are busy baking bread, stirring caramel, and slicing up butter plaques.

But with wet weather expected soon, they’re adding flood preparation to their list of daily duties.

Heavy rainfall can be scary for a business in a location prone to flooding, especially for a bakeshop like mix, with expensive equipment.

“Huge power converters for some of our baking equipment, so we just need to make sure that those are all safe. Those are thousand-dollar pieces of equipment or more,” Skyler Conner-Coash said. Conner-Coash is a chef at Mix bakeshop.

At the end of the day, Mix is hoping for the best and preparing for the worst and hoping their preparation pays off.

There are a few things you can do to prep for the rain. Be sure to clear your gutters and storm drains,
and check your windshield wipers if you plan on driving.
