The Great Hot Air Balloon Chase, One



I was sitting in front of my computer early Saturday morning when I heard the familiar whoosh of hot air shooting into a balloon. I looked out and saw the above balloon floating over the condos just south west of my house.



Suddenly, I caught the image of another balloon, rising fast, directly west of my house.



Then, just to the north west, I spotted this balloon sitting next to a newly constructed and still unoccupied home directly across from my house.

I dashed outside, got into my truck, and headed for the Clock Tower in the hopes of finding more balloons either taking off or touching down.

Tune in tomorrow to see what happened!
