Live! They haven't dropped the rope yet even though the fireworks were canceled due to wind! It's freezing and very slow tonight

Ooooo, ahhhhh. - mini_MINNIE  852.6 #156 12-19-12 9:42AM Like(1)  Reply
Yeah, it's a bit chilly this evening... Kinda lively over in NOS though... - NotSoDapperDan  321.5 #664 12-18-12 10:00PM Like  Reply
I knew at 6 that they would probably cancel fireworks due to winds. It was just too windy all day! A great time to be taking pictures, though! - IDVandalSkipperCM  1940.6 #56 12-18-12 10:02PM Like  Reply
super dopey question :0) how does the wind affect the firework show? is it a safety issue? - OhanaPhoto  2912.4 #29 12-19-12 9:26AM
^absolutely it is safety issue. The fireworks are shot into the sky with the wind they will be shot off target it could explode and cause fires to the structures or plants around the resort. More importantly with the wind comes static electricity that can cause the shells to explode before they shot into the air which is dangerous to the firework technicians. - vincentchase1  672.6 #216 12-19-12 9:37AM
^ thank you so much for the info! i've always wondered what the specifics were. totally makes sense! - OhanaPhoto  2912.4 #29 12-19-12 9:48AM
That and the direction of the wind depends on whether or not we can shoot off the fireworks. If the wind is blowing towards DCA for example, we can't do fireworks because the fall out will fall directly into the park! - IDVandalSkipperCM  1940.6 #56 12-19-12 10:33AM
the fall out already falls on you right outside of iasw shop - toph  2416.6 #39 12-19-12 10:36AM
i always dread the white balloon lol :0) - OhanaPhoto  2912.4 #29 12-19-12 11:01AM
Toph, you're right. - IDVandalSkipperCM  1940.6 #56 12-19-12 12:15PM
@ohanaphoto we've sat and watched a show where there were at least 6 white balloons released during the remember show - toph  2416.6 #39 12-19-12 5:50PM
When I went to the casting center there were a lot of signs that warned against fall out. And what is the deal with the white balloons? - JRDrummer_CM  875.4 #153 12-19-12 7:23PM
@JRDrummer I believe they use them to measure the winds but usually before a show. - toph  2416.6 #39 12-19-12 7:28PM
The white balloons help the Disney Fire Department and the pyrotechnic crew measure the wind direction and speed to determine if it's safe to set off the fireworks. - IDVandalSkipperCM  1940.6 #56 12-19-12 7:30PM
They release balloons to see which direction the wind carries them. - MamaRoo  466.4 #367 12-19-12 7:30PM
@toph (my fav avatar character :0) after the 6 balloons did they cancel the show? - OhanaPhoto  2912.4 #29 12-19-12 8:54PM
