PHOENIXVILLE PA – If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to ride in one of those hot air balloons often seen drifting above Limerick (PA) Township early on a calm morning, Leann Petit wants you to wonder no more.

Petit is the editor of The (Phoenixville PA) Phoenix newspaper, and an accomplished cook and traveler too. She and friends took off last week (Nov. 18, 2010) with the U.S. Hot Air Balloon Team, a company that conducts flights from locations in Montgomery, Chester and Berks (PA) counties. They glided across and above Limerick, enjoying the sunrise and passing by the Exelon Nuclear cooling towers.
