    I spent about 4-hours today playing “monkey man” up on the roof of my house and climbing various length ladders.
    I hooked up 20 or so sets of those hanging “icicle” lights, extension cords & various timers.
    I figured I would do it early this year because the weather was relatively warm today and I didn’t have anything on the schedule.
    See all the fun you condo & apartment dwellers are missing. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Anybody else here go through this family ritual every year ???

    PS…. I always have visions of Chevy Chase with the staple gun when I am up there.

    Hey!i live in an apartment and I put lights out today.I wraped them all the way around the fence,along the bottom of the patio above and then...there is this post in the middle of the patio,its a 4x4 supporting the patio.Well,I wrapped about 6 strings around it,next time I make it to walmart I am going to get a few strings of green and make the post into the trunk and the green will be branches of a christmas tree.
    I also have another plan.I want to get a 4x8 sheet of plywood,get some red,white,blue and gold strings.make a big flag the gold will be the border...I should probably paint the board first too..

    I never seemed to get into decorating the outside of my house with lights. My idea of decorating is shining 3 various colour spotlights against the outside of the house and maybe put an angel or something like that. 5 minutes to set up and take down.

    Lesser of the evils here.
    1. Put up the lights.
    2. Go shopping.
    3. Visit a theme park.
    Methinks option #3 is the way to go (at least for right now [​IMG]).

    Shawn -- Thanks for the update on the lights -- Do you have any of the X10 devices hooked up so they automatically turn on & off, and save you the trip of plugging & unplugging the strings from the outside???[​IMG]
    The power Co has issued an advisement " Tree cutting will not be allowed until the xmas season is over"
    Seems that someone has caused some power outages in your area -- were you affected?? [​IMG]

    Yes I believe this is the one --- I like the little orange things in the road -- Do they light up.
