Monday – 10 Days Till 2015 Light-off

Goal for last week was to complete the two main houses…I’m happy to report, mission accomplished. At the 98% level of completion on those houses (never quite achieve 100% as I’m always adding something), even checked that all the lights are working (at least for the moment).
This week is devoted to the other 6 houses, which is usually about a 3 to 4 day job. Judging by the weather forecast, I’ll probably loose Wednesday, but that should not be a problem.
Having my brother working with me certainly has speeded up the process, especially when checking the power use and working on ladders.
So far, I’ve replaced (or thrown away) about 9,000 lights, which is well under the estimated 10% replacement each year. Added another 500 feet of LED lights. Hope they hold up better than last years LED lights (which had a 40% failure rate).
Next publishing date should be next weekend, when I report that everything is ready for the Thanksgiving light-off!
