GAINES – It was another 70-plus degree day today. This tree on Butts Road, near the Kirby farm just north of the canal, really jumped out to me this afternoon.

There were people out jogging in shorts and T-shirts on what felt like an early September day, not Nov. 5, with temperatures in the mid-70s.

This photo shows a little pedestrian bridge over Proctor Brook behind the Blacksmith Shop on Route 98, part of the Cobblestone Museum grounds.

The tower of the Ingersoll Street lift bridge in Albion is reflected in the Erie Canal.

Friday is forecast for a high of 66 before the temperature falls to a high of 50 on Saturday and 48 on Sunday.
