Skies were cloudy over Dushore in Sullivan County and the winds were still blowing as Thursday evening’s vigorous storm system was pulling away, as seen looking up the Doc Shoemaker Highway. The stretch of Route 220 from its intersection with Rt 87 to the Bradford County line was dedicated in a ceremony held in Dushore Friday morning.
