Hot Air...

I have wanted to attend the annual Hot Air Balloon launch at Clovisfest for a long time. This is a weekend activity that requires me to wake up earlier than one should on a non-working day, today I made it happen. Abby and I slipped into our favorite hoodies and jeans and headed to the Rodeo Grounds only to find out that the balloons could not launch due a crazy weather system that blew into Fresno the night before causing high winds in the upper atmosphere.
It was a lot of fun to see the balloons up-close and to learn more about the science behind them. I guess we will have to try again next year.
