We had a beautiful flight this morning out of Argyle with a couple of folks on a Private Flight.

Well, those of you who are planning on visiting the Adirondack Balloon Festival will not be happy with the weather forecast. As I type this blog post (3:48 PM 9/20/13), I suspect that the wind will present a problem due to speed and direction out at the airport for the Friday PM launch. And then, the rest of the weekend looks difficult, tho you may see a few fly on Saturday morning, but the speed and direction of the wind will be a problem again for flying from the airport. I am sure there will be a few hardy soles who will perform for the masses, but the rest of the weekend, Saturday evening and all of Sunday will most likely be a no go. Oh well, the weather does improve for flying on Tuesday of this week and for a couple of days there after!
