Recent Hot Air Balloon Rides and Weather

Thursday, August 22nd, 2013

Guess it’s time to get caught-up on the recent flights we’ve been doing. The weather for doing hot air balloon rides has much improved over earlier in the year. But, if the Climate Prediction Center’s 8-14 day outlook is to be believed, we may be heading back to an unsettled period for the last week of the month and the early part of September. I suspect we will get our opportunities to fly tho, especially for this coming weekend which looks great. So come on out and play!

The rides will be posted backward, starting with the most recent on back —

Labor Day Weekend Flights and Weather Forecast for the Week

Monday, September 3rd, 2012

The flying weather for doing our hot air balloon rides was real good for the Labor Day Holiday Weekend, lots of flying. First up is

On Saturday evening, I flew Joanna, Jeff and Hunter from Selkirk.

On Sunday morning, I flew Mark and Chris from Schoharie, and Doug and Gene from Poestenkill.

On Sunday evening, I flew Alyssa, Christopher, Mark and Pang, all from Niskayuna.

On Labor Day Monday morning, I flew Dan from Rensselaer, and Maureen and Heather from Clifton Park.

The weather forecast for the Lake George, Saratoga Springs area for this week is not good if you want to go on a balloon ride, but is good if you are looking for your lawn to be watered. It’s basically wet all week right into the coming weekend, except maybe Friday. Well, it has been dry, but it would be nice if the weather wasn’t extreme, either hot and dry, or cold and wet. Oh well, it is, what it is.
