SCRANTON — On street after street in Scranton there were kids outside playing.
Temperatures were in the 60s in mid-November and it was a day off from school.
A combination kids and parents were loving.
“Mother nature is so unpredictable I mean it’s just such a beautiful day. The kids woke up and asked me to get out their flip flops and shorts after just packing it all away. It’s a great treat for them especially with the day off,” said Lori Barrett, of Scranton.
Lori Barrett’s kids were just having fun with dirt but for her and many moms and dads, kids burning some energy outside is nice before the many months inside ahead.
They were looking for things to do and I just said go outside and play, it’s a beautiful day!
At Marywood University classes were in session, but that didn’t keep artist Erin McMahon inside. She was painting the last glimpses of fall.
