Well, this SUCKS!!! I got up this morning well before sunrise. I was hoping to catch the Dawn Patrol. Every morning, while it's still almost dark, they send up a dozen or so balloons. I remember them last year, lighting up the night sky. I went outside, no Dawn Patrol. The motorhome next to me has this colorful spinnie thing hanging from their awning. It was spinning furiously. I immediately thought... Shit!!! They're not launching today. I was so looking forward to today! Today was supposed to be a Mass Ascension day. Last year, the final Saturday of the event was by FAR the BEST day of the entire event! There were more balloons than any other day, a great sky, and no wind. No wind meant it pretty much sucked for ballooning, but man it was great for photography, because they all went up and just sat there. So, I dug through the archives. Here's one from last year, taken on that final Saturday. Just one of hundreds of photos I shot that morning, and never got around to adjusting and posting. It was an amazing morning. At least this gave me something to work on, as I sit here watching stuff blow by my window. I have decided that a balloon festival without any balloons is really quite boring!
