A hot air balloon made an emergency landing outside of Fenton, MO on 8/2/08 early in the evening. I got a phone call about it, dressed the sprout, grabbed my camera, and ran out the door. It landed in my complex, but on another street, so I got there just in time to see them deflating it, wrapping it up, and loading it onto a truck. It was pretty cool to see and hear all the kids in the neighborhood tell their wide-eyed versions of how it came in and landed. My daughter’s grandmother said it landed like a feather.
