Tired here too and this is my first year. Been working on it for the past 5 days and beat already. Tomorrow, its up onto the roof time. So far, my single channel testing has gone well and no failures but truly I won't know till its all connected.

Well mine is officially up. Now I have to test each circuit to insure its all working. Hoping to do that this evening. Maybe I'll run one sequence and see how it looks. Don't wish to spoil things for the neighbors. Still two weeks till light-up.

Ran into a little glitch a small blizzard is hitting us expecting about a foot of snow at least that's what the forecasters say but you know how they are I have been out twice in the last hour to shovel I am giving up they the snow should quit by Sat.

My little glitch was last night when I ran my first test. Found the arches were not behaving as I had programmed them too. Today I discovered that I had a "duh" attack when I mounted the controllers and got three of the six, physically mounted in the wrong locations therefore connected to the wrong light strings. Rather than change their locations, I changed the addresses and all is well again pending another test tonight once its dark enough to see.

ARGH.. Ok.. so I should have know this.. but Coro props that use hot glue, and Garage storage don't mix! All my LED's fell off the backboard... now to cut it completely apart and re-attach everything. Looks like it's time to negotiate for the college daughters room for some cold christmas storage :)

Hey Tundra - enjoy that 41 degree warmth. We're sitting at a windy 27 degrees and dropping, and this cold air is heading straight for you. Looks like a good day for sequencing. (But then, what day isn't...)
