WWNY Your Turn: feedback on boat parties, microburst & serving of alcohol

WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - Despite a flare up in Jefferson County COVID-19 cases last week, county officials say it appears parties are still being held near Picton Island. Health officials traced the outbreak in the Clayton area, in part, to boat parties off the island over the July 4th weekend:

Last Wednesday marked the 25th anniversary of the 1995 Microburst, a storm which tore a path through the north country. A lot of you shared your memories:

I got married that day. I remember a kind woman coming to my car, seeing my wedding dress...telling me that I could drive on their lawn to get around a downed tree to get to the church.
