Hot Air Balloons and Chasing the Moon

Services for Real Estate Pros with Casual Uncluttering LLC

I used to live in a neighborhood where feckless hot air balloon tour operators routinely tried to tear the roofs off of houses. My son and I made a sport of chasing them to see where they'd land. You could never plan chasing a balloon: those flights are always subject to the whims of the wind and the pilots.


I also chase the moon. Sunday May 15 was a Super Flower Blood Moon, including a lunar eclipse. I've finally chased enough moons that I CAN plan those races. No roaming hills and climbing dales at a leisurely pace, I wanted first place. I went direct to the route that I know gives me a glimpse, and timed my travels perfectly to the orb's rise.  And so it rained. Poured really.

How sad for you that you got rained out of the eclipse. Maybe get another chance in 40-50 years?

Ah, you knew where to go but the eclipse was not being cooperative. But that's okay - it'll happen again!
