Monday – 10 Days till Light-off

Twas a very productive weekend.  I estimate that about 85% of the lights are now strung, including both houses.  Ran the main electrical lines and hung some ornaments from trees.  Even got the Bellevue Florist building lighted up (about 8,000 lights).

Next step is moving all the figures out and wiring them in.  Today is a loss due to the rain, but Tuesday thru Friday should see all the figures out in the two main displays.  The weekend will be for the other 6 houses.  It still feels like I am running behind, but I will have a better feel for it when I see how fast the figures go up.

Just saw an ad in my Popular Science for a new light tester called Light Keeper Pro.  Looks very simple to use and its hand held with batteries.  The one I have been using for years needs to be plugged in and is not very portable for working outside.  I’ll buy one of the new ones and let you know how it works.
