Hot Air Balloon Ride Flying Weather for last Week of the Month

The weather forecast for the rest of the week is not looking the best to get any flying done, at least as of this evening. The weather is starting to transition toward our winter season, and this morning, national news was showing snow from Golden Colorado. Our son Grant was living in Golden back in 2009, now living in Grand Junction on the other side of the mountains. On our visit in early November in 2009 we also experienced snow. We got snowed-on in mid April of that year also when we visited his family in Golden, so early/late snow isn’t unheard of. But, it doesn’t last.

This was at the Buffalo Bill Cody Museum up in the hills above Golden on our April visit

And the next day, it looks like this on the Front Range in Golden. That's not North East weather.

If I don’t get to do my Saturday flights, that will be it for this year for my hot air balloon rides.  I will start flying again in the Spring of 2012.
