Squint Shot 122210
As we stood at the east end of the downtown area, on Grand River Avenue, the balloonists rode past us, igniting their propane burners used when flying. To say the least, it was impressive. With temperatures around freezing and a breeze that was starting to pick up, even a few snowflakes in the air, the heat off the fire was welcomed. And the "whoosh" of the blue flames was just plain impressive. The next couple of days will show a few more shots of this part of the parade.
