Powerful North Blowing Winds Grab Balloon Release Numbers 75, 76, 77, And 78.

Here's a unique view of the four bouquets just before release, from the ground looking straight up at them. I was watching the weather news earlier today and they showed a POWERFUL wind streaming up out of the Gulf of Mexico and pushing northward all the way from Texas deep into Canada! Very exciting as all four of our finds have occurred east of Texas, and sometimes I wonder if they fall victim to the sea. If these do indeed head north they could be found in north Texas, Oklahoma, Minnesota, even Canada!

It was a beautiful night for a release this February 6, 2009 at about 9 PM, cool but not cold, with half a moon illuminating the scanty clouds. Each bouquet rose slowly, cleared the roof line, then rose in 45 degree or steeper angles into the northeast sky. I am hoping that up a bit higher they catch a powerful and fast current and get carried far, far away!
