    I want to do something like the Griswalds but the "Boss" of the house won't let me. :(

    National Lampoons Christmas Vacation. Chevy Chase "Clark W. Griswald" covered his whole house including the roof with christmas lights. :D

    That would be cool but I am already worried about the power bill. When I turn them all on the meter looks like the disk in a cd player. I spent $300 on lights and am afraid I might spend another $300 on the power to run them. Oh well tis the season to be jolly.

    I found that taking pictures of lights in the dark doesn't work out all that well. Nice looking lights and that snow looks like some real nice stuff. Ours is not normally that fluffy looking. Ours is more ice crystaly.

    Could be the ghost of Christmas but I think it is my breath. It was a little cold out that day.

    I wish.
    That was from last year about this time, we had about 2' on the ground from end of nov until Beginning of Jan. Now we have a few piles left in the really biggggggggggg parking lots, like malls, but its only very small piles.

    Hey Crumm what is that star hanging on in your pic? Seems to high for a chimney but I could be wrong.

    Looking good Crumm! I'm lucky to get lights up around the front of the house...scared to death of heights! :eek:

    My wife always laughs at me...big burly guy up on the extension ladder and she can hear it rattle as I'm shaking like a leaf up there.

    LOL, Iam used to the ladder by now, have someone hold it, that helps alot. I was up on the roof just an hour ago which is what scares me, i can walk fine on the pitched roof and i can get up on it from the laddar pretty easy. The problem is getting down, i hate the idea of kneeling sideways on the very edge of a 45 degree pitched roof up 35' trying to get one foot on to the ladder and then transfer my weight back to the ladder with out it falling out from under me :cry: Do not attempt without someone holding the ladder. I climb alone up to maybe 15' but after that it is stupid not to have someone holding the ladder.

    Same here I hate getting back onto the ladder from the roof. Heck on our roof when I'm done I go to the lowest point and just jump off. :p Its alot easier for me and Ill keep using that way until I grow to old and stiff and hurt myself. :nod: :jester:
