    Well, I will get a thread going about our upcoming winter. Looks like northeast Ohio might have some action late next week. (Thanksgiving week) Still alot of time to see how all this pans out though.

    Been pretty dull down here. I have not seen any snowflakes yet myself.

    Yeah Steve that is what I keep hearing. Waiting for some updated from Skyeye from this evening. Looking at models it looks to be rain right now. The cold front is slowing down. I wondering if it is a bad run on those myself. Time will tell later on what is going to happen.



    Tell me about it. I was outside putting up Christmas lights. All brand new ones on the house. Only to find out after they all were up on the outline of the house some are brighter than the others. $!@$#!$!#@$!$!$!$#!$!#$ I am not very happy. Still have not decided if we are going to take them down or now. :gunsfiring:

    Hell at least they work. I hate putting them all up when its COLD outside only to have to spend another 2 hours finding where the damn bulbs are burned out. Going LED everything either this year or next. Probably next since Im on the injured list.

    I should have tried putting some up today but the race was more important and it gets dark too early.


    Did you use LED ones? If so thats probably where the brightness issues are coming from. Is it whole strands that are dimmer?

    That is why I took advantage of the warm weather today. I have done them in full carharts with wind chills in the 20's

    Nope no LED's. 3 sets of 200 are brighter than the 5 sets of 150. I don't get it. Same type, phillips but major difference in light output.

    Weird. Your obviously getting a power drop down somewhere in those strands. Almost like a resistor built in or you got too many lights on same strand. Your only supposed to put X amount of strands in a row. I know I had to split mine up from it blowing those stupid little fuses in the plugs.

    Unplug them things and take em back. Ya cant be looking like no Griswalds now! :D

    It is a weather forum based out of Cincinnati. The owner is a Chief Meterologist and has his own business of forecasting for clients that pay him. There are other certified meterologists that post on there as well. A bunch of non certified guys that are better than some of the certified guys. Pretty good bunch of people that know their stuff.

    Sounds like a good tool- I've been frustrated by how sensationalized local forecasts have become. Do many of you find it worth the cost?

    Well, after getting done with work today we just ended up taking them all down. We put up all new ones. That was fun putting them up in the dark Good thing these were much brighter than the ones we had up. lol Sure did light up the roof for us.

    Yes sir they sure do. Looks like rain for the upcoming system. I just did a quick read over there since I am just now getting on the puter for the first time today. Will look better in a bit to see what all they are thinking now. Unless you have been over there.
