The calendar says October, and the leaves are changing, but it doesn't feel like fall outside.
The sun was shining, and temperatures almost reached 80 degrees across our area. WHIZ caught up with some joggers enjoying the warm weather on the Gorsuch Fitness Trail behind Genesis-Bethesda Hospital in Zanesville. Diane Milligan said she enjoys the scenery along the trail.
"The trail is like a mile long, and it's very nice to watch the squirrels," said Milligan. We came across some deer last week when we had my great niece, and she was actually able to pet one."
Christine Rowe said taking a walk helps break up a busy day. She said she's looking forward to spending more time outside on Saturday.
"We're going to a wiener roast at my daughter's house and watching the Buckeyes game," said Rowe.
The summerlike warmth is expected to stick around for the weekend.
