Hubbie & I have been volunteers for the Hudson Hot Air Affair for the past 7 years. The balloons took off on Saturday morning but the Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning flights were called due to poor visibility. Hubbie flew two school teachers from the Hudson area schools and had a good landing in someone's back yard. Saturday night a handful of balloons inflated for the moon glow. It was a bit on the breezy side as Hubbie's sister and I soon discovered while trying to hold on to a flopping 7 story balloon by a rope connected to the top of the balloon (crown line). It took two of us skiing across the snow covered field more than once. A fun weekend!
Here's a short video taken by Roger Bindl of HEM Productions. I met him this weekend.
