Arrived in Natchez Yesterday afternoon to meet our friends from Memphis. After getting everything set up in the campground we headed out to get a bite to eat. Arrived back in the campground just in time to see a full moon rising over the Mississippi river. I know the picture doesn’t do it justice, but hopefully you can appreciate how awesome it was.
The plan for this morning was to do a show and tell at the local Head Start Center and then lift off for a leisurely morning flight. Mother Nature had other plans. Though the winds weren’t too bad at the surface, at 700 ft. they were over 20 miles per hour. Not too good to be up there at that speed.
We wound up doing the show and tell by unloading the basket and burner from the truck and doing a little talk along with a few burns. Too windy even to inflate the envelope. Most seemed to enjoy it, though some were scared of the noise.
The winds are forecast to subside by mid afternoon. Hopefully, we’ll get a flight in later today. If not, we’ll try again tomorrow morning…………….jc
