Rochester, N.Y./Irondequoit, N.Y. – The hot weather is bringing boaters back to the lake – a far cry from last year’s flooding.

This time last year, local marinas and other businesses along the lake were taking major losses, with their businesses underwater. Wednesday, they were happy to get back to business as usual, and boaters are once again cruising the waters.

Karl Kurz has been boating for 14 years.
