Rain grounds big balloons

Mother Nature is just not co-operating.

Hot air balloons were supposed to take the the skies above the North Okanagan today, but the drizzling rain has grounded the air behemoths.

Pilots were planning to take off at noon from Village Green Centre, but had to scuttle those plans at the skies open up.

But there are still plenty of opportunities for the balloons to fly before the fiesta is over, as flights are planned through Sunday.

However, like today's flight, it is dependent on the weather.

Balloon enthusiasts have a chance to get up close and personal with the balloons and their pilots at the popular Balloon Glow in Polson Park from 5-7 p.m. Friday, Feb. 9.
