liftoff vs. grounded

It rained during the night, and we had fog and mist, but we had liftoff. Here's to the perfect still beauty of it.

Just seeing the trucks with their lights and balloon loads stream over the field in the early darkness injected a frisson of anticipation in the buildup of the morning, and we fretted for two or three hours before the sky filled with hundreds of balloons.
