Dack The Halls With LED Lights

I finally got the lights up this afternoon.  I was tired of trying to figure out which bulb was dead every year (there were always dead sections of lights) so this year we bought LED lights which are more robust, longer lasting, and more energy efficient.  They are very white and have a slight bluish tinge which, frankly, make them look more like ice.

The lights went up fairly easy.  A previous owner had put in screws along the eves which made it simple to hang the strings of lights.  The only hitch was that I'd never been on the roof of this house.  To be safe, the Wife was outside and watched me as I put them up.  Fortunately 911 was not needed.

We are now as ready as we can be for the company that's coming.


  1. I've always been fond of blue/blueish tinged lights just for the icicle feel reason.

    The house is lookin' good. :)

  2. Purdy!

    I've been debating whether or not to even get out the Christmas stuff this year...

  3. JaG: Thank you. The color is different that what we are used to but we like them.

    GH: Thanks! Christmas stuff always cheers me up even though i moan and groan about putting it up each year.
