Rocket Gone Wrong
Saturday, April 27, 2013
Yesterday was such a beautiful day where I live, 65 degrees! Maybe winter is finally over. We have 3 seasons, Winter, Summer, and inbetween Mud.
My husband has toy rockets that we set off for our 2 little boys as often as weather permits. This time, we weren't so lucky. Overcompensated for the wind ( which is also always present here). The rocket didn't go as high as we thought due to low trajectory and the parachute didn't deploy fast enough to avoid getting stuck in a very high tree.
I gallantly tried to climb it (not that it would have helped get it down, it was too high) and ended up scraping up my arms nicely.
My husband even tried to stand on a tall ladder and use an extendable rod to reach it, but to no avail. Sadly, we are minus one fun yellow rocket.
