  1. Very cool! Do you have a link to the Channel 10 WPLJ interview? I couldn't find it on their website.
  2. I resisted the urge to start early this past weekend and lit up today at 5:00 pm (Thanksgiving day) as usual.
  3. That's exactly how I felt, and as recently as 3 weeks ago I was planning on going dark this year to match my mood for 2020. But then I saw several houses fully lit up the 2nd week of Nov, which inspired me to start planning my setup for this year. Unfortunately Mother Nature didn't cooperate, so this year's light show will be "tame" (maybe even "lame" lol) compared to the past several years.
  4. The weather hasn't been cooperating and I lost almost an entire week of set up time. Lots of cold weather, rain, wind, and snow flurries. I wasn't able to start setting up until last Wed 11/18. In order to be ready for Thanksgiving night, I had to be finished by this past weekend because I knew we were getting more bad weather this week. So I made the decision to put up less lights and props this year to cut down on the set up time. So our light show will be a watered-down version of what we usually do. But on the up-side that means tear-down during frigid temperatures in January will ta
  5. I usually light up on Thanksgiving evening but I'm seeing more and more houses lighting up over the past 2 weeks. So I'm seriously thinking of lighting up this weekend since I'll be finished with my setup tomorrow (Sat) afternoon.
  6. On the way back from my 2 daughters' appointments in Green Bay yesterday we saw 5 or 6 houses that already had Christmas lights/decor on their houses and/or yards. Many trees on business-zoned streets were also lit up with lights. When we were a few blocks from our house we saw 2 houses that had some Christmas lights/decor. Anyone else seeing houses lit up with Christmas lights & decor already? I think this is the earliest that I've seen them.
  7. You can use up to 4 16-channel light controllers with the TSO starter package. Your 3 controllers should be configured with controller IDs 1, 2, & 3. I think you can change the controller ID number using the LOR Hardware Utility, but I can't remember for sure. I specified that I wanted my 3 controllers configured that way when I ordered them. In regards to hooking up your lights to the 48 channels, on the following webpage read the 2 sections carefully titled Laying out your channels and Here's the easiest way to remember what the different channels do to help you plan your setup.
  8. Been using this same speaker for the past 3 yrs and highly recommend it. The first year I used it I just had it sitting on top of some landscaping bricks, then these past 2 yrs I used the included speaker bracket to mount it to the side of our front porch. Definitely worth the $150 price tag IMO. https://www.fullcompass.com/prod/189757-yorkville-c120p-100w-weather-resistant-powered-speaker-with-5-woofer
  9. Luckily I'm able to work from home, so I only have to leave the house once every 7 - 10 days to pick up prescriptions and/or groceries for my family of 5. Haven't had too much trouble finding TP, but still can't find disinfectant wipes. Luckily we had a few containers of them before they became impossible to find (I use them to disinfect our groceries in the garage before I bring them into the house). I'll be furloughed the week of May 3, but luckily the $1200 stimulus check will cover most of my lost net pay for that week. Thankful to still have my job (for now...knock on wood). Gonn
  10. Almost looks like a shoe print from someone's work boot.
  11. Looks really nice. Mind if I ask how much it cost? I'm curious because I'm thinking of extending our driveway sideways towards our house so we can park 2 cars there, and having a sidewalk installed from the driveway to our front porch. The amount of concrete that would we'd need to be poured is about the same size as your driveway. How long did you have to wait until you could park on it?
  12. Today is Feb 12, and although they took down the inflatables & blow molds in mid-January, as of today they still have their icicle lights & window decor and still turn them on every evening!
  13. I wanted to upload my 95-minute video to Vimeo too after Youtube blocked it worldwide. But like you I have an upload limit that isn't high enough, and I didn't want to pay to upgrade. Since I'm already paying $1.99/month for 100 GB of storage on Google Drive and still had plenty of space available, that's where I uploaded it.
  14. We've got snow in the forecast tonight & tomorrow as well as strong winds. So after tearing down the majority of the lights, props, & LOR controllers on 1/4, I took down the mini-static display (Nativity scene & icicle lights) today. So we're officially dark on 1/10. Our house & yard look dull, lifeless, sad & boring now.
  15. OMG...today they added 2 big inflatables!!! 😄 If they keep this up I'm going to sneak into their yard at night with my LOR controllers, mini-Director, outdoor speaker, & SPT1 cords and rewire all their lights & props! And something tells me they might not even mind! 😄
