Out and About

The Hudson Hot Air Affair

This weekend is the 35th annual Hudson Hot Air Affair in Hudson, Wisconsin. The hot-air balloon festival was supposed to take place yesterday, Saturday, as well, but they had to cancel it because the conditions weren’t perfect. Apparently, weather conditions that do not seem particularly capricious to the average Joe or Jane could spell disaster for balloonists. With that said, today is my mom’s birthday, so it worked out well for us.

I took these 20 photos from 7:39 to 8:17 a.m.
