Norman and I watched as a hot air balloon floated over the farm where we were repairing a dyke last week.
It was very cold that day. I guess balloons rise better in cold weather much like smoke rises better up a chimney on a cold day. I could hear the blasts from the propane tank as the flames kept the air inside of the balloon warmer than the outside air. I wonder if it is enough heat to keep the voyagers warm too. I know I would have liked to be warmer that day.
