Hot Air Balloon

Random Hot Air BalloonThis was a pleasant surprise, I got up rather early the other morning. I was sitting at my desk and looked out the window. And this is what I saw. There was a hot air balloon floating by. I was a bit surprised, I have lived in this general area for several years and I don’t remember ever seeing a hot air balloon this far North.

What you need to keep in mind is that we live less than 5 miles from Lake Ontario. I don’t know that much about ballooning, but I would think that flying this close to the lake could be disastrous. If the wind shifts, you might find yourself over the water.
