Hey guys -- something a bit odd happened tonite (Sunday 11/13) before the fireworks and maybe someone here can explain.
About half an hour before the fireworks Disneyland announced that they may be cancelling the fireworks due to "winds at high altitudes". They announced that again like 15 minutes before fireworks. Then 5 minutes before fireworks they announced they would be starting after all (which rocked since I was SO close to the Castle thanks to the magical stylings of our very own The Bob).
That wouldn't have been so strange except for the fact that there was NO WIND tonite. Not even a little breeze. The flags on the castle weren't moving. The tops of very tall trees weren't moving. I've been at the Park when they DID in fact cancel fireworks due to wind -- but those days it was actually WINDY.
So some questions: 1) Why would they cancel due to winds at high altitudes since the fireworks aren't all that high up? 2) How would they even know there are "winds at high altitudes" anyway? 3) If there are "winds at high altitudes" and, for the sake of argument, they would affect fireworks thus requiring a last minute call on whether the fireworks were going to be shown or not -- how would that be any guarantee that the winds would "die down" for the entirety of the fireworks? (Was that question confusing enough?) LOL
I was just curious so if anyone has any knowledge of this stuff I'd be ever so grateful.
