winter weather http://wrvo.org en Stranded drivers find welcome at Jefferson County hotels, homes http://wrvo.org/post/stranded-drivers-find-welcome-jefferson-county-hotels-homes <p>The last portions of Route 81 between Watertown and North Syracuse are open again, after lake-effect storms closed much of the highway down.<br /><br />Through the storms, hardy North Country natives have been helping stranded travelers. Many people spent last night in fire halls - the one in Adams took in 150 people. Watertown hotels right off the Interstate 81 exit were full, of both drivers and staff who couldn't get out, either.</p><p></p> Wed, 08 Jan 2014 21:45:24 +0000 Joanna Richards 49655 at http://wrvo.org Stranded drivers find welcome at Jefferson County hotels, homes
