A Very Rare Morning

Today, Saturday, is the first day of the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta. The forecast was very good. The morning had everything you want for a mass ascension of the balloons… cool temperatures, almost no wind… but we had something we haven’t had in our 16 years… FOG.

That’s our view and there’s an 11,000 foot mountain behind all that fog. This is extremely rare.

The local TV stations broadcast the Fiesta on the weekend and a lot of the balloons did inflate on the field. Here are some screen captures of our TV, taken by their news helicopter…

A few balloons did take off and here’s another helicopter picture from our TV…

Tomorrow’s forecast is very good, so hopefully we’ll see some balloons up our way if the wind cooperates.
