Hot-air balloon nearly lands on my house

This morning was the annual Balloons Over Bend event here in town. I completely forgot about the festival until a balloon nearly landed on my roof at 6:45 this morning. I was wondering what that weird noise was outside, and went outside to figure out what it was to find a balloon basket probably a mere 15 feet above my house. He ended up landing in Stover park (1/2 block from my house), as I think he was having trouble with balloon. Since I was awake, I sat and watched about a dozen more float over my house. It was quite a sight, but very cool to watch.

Of course, now they're trying to use the event as a tourist draw, which I'm not really happy about, but that's another story entirely.
