Dismantling Begins

Well, the weather hasn't cooperated. It has been cold so I cannot get on the roof to remove lights. I took most of the big items out of the yard. Some decorations are frozen to the ground so I have to wait. Last year the HOA did not complain when I could not take down everything until mid-March. I hope they leave me alone again this year!

Lights Out...

Well, the time has come. I am watching the last cycle of the Lights in Motion 2007 show. The holiday season has gone by so fast. This was probably the best show yet. The music synchronization is what made it so. I am extremely happy!

Now I am thinking about how to make the 2008 show even better. First, the decorations must come down and stored away in anticipation of coming to life again. This won't be easy, however. This is the second year in a row that we received quite a bit of snow and cold air at Christmas. In past years, all of the lights would be stored by the end of January which is what the Home Owners Association likes too. If we don't get some warm days soon (like we usually do), I may not get everything out of sight in time. I hope the HOA will understand.

Lots of Snow Again

Snow has fallen and more keeps falling. Some of the decorations are buried in snow drifts. It kind of looks like last year; although, only half as much snow (42 inches last year). At least people were able to enjoy the show up until Christmas. Last year, the snow fell a week before Christmas so viewer turnout was minimal.

Merry Christmas!

Christmas Eve 2007

Merry Christmas...Eve! The night is warm and calm, a great evening to watch a holiday light show. I have seen up to ten cars at one time parked in front of the house. With such a pleasant evening some people are getting out of their cars and watching from the sidewalk. I put a radio outside so they could hear the music.

I am glad so many people are enjoying the show. That's one of the things that makes all the hard work worth while.

Happy Holidays!

Music Sounds Great

Well, I solved the distortion problem. I wasn't able to make any adjustments on the MP3 controller or the FM transmitter; however, I fixed the problem by remixing the music with lower gain. The show is awesome now!
