At 7:50 tonight somebody on the beach, to which I restrain myself from adding a few choice adjectives, sent off four rather large hot air balloons. These were much larger than what we normally see on New Years.
The air currents tonight brought those balloons directly over the residential areas inland of the beach. Fortunately, the cool evening air we have right now enabled those bolloons to drift high in the sky. Slightly warmer air could have resulted in those flaming balloons landing in the community.
If you have ever seen a palapa go up in flames, you will understand the dire consequences. It ain't pretty.
We have a palapa, and watched anxiously as these craft flew overhead.
In short, please think before you engage in dangerous practices.
