hot air balloons over mckinney tx

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday

It's happening more and more frequently.

The dogs outside begin barking - almost in a panic. I look outside and don't see anything immediately, but then hear the familiar sound of the powerful torch inside giant hot air balloons sporadically going off. Looking up, I see sometimes one, but sometimes a fleet, of beautiful hot air balloons.

The picture above was from this morning - taken with my phone for lack of time to grab a better camera - just in front of my house.

It's that time of year!

Hot air balloon enthusiasts are taking advantage of Spring weather and are taking to the skies. This trend will continue throughout the summer and into the fall.

I don't know exactly what it is about McKinney, TX that draws them here...but I love living near many of the launch and landing sites. The dogs...not so much.

What is funny about this picture is that it looks like you inserted the balloon. Something about it makes it look unrealistic. Have you ever been? I'd like to take a ride one day.

It was fun listening to how the dogs reacted when they heard the air heaters on the big ballons belch when they got turned on.
