Need a PC ruling

I am transitioning to green and red C9 leds along the fascia of the house and also adding the same to the hips and ridges. My 1000ft reel of white stringers have been unwoiund in the front yard and I have hung (temporary) to measure, cut and start installing the clips. I just finished taking them down to solder the spt3 leads on them. Still 90 here, too hot to start the roof area.

Does this constitute starting to hang ?????

Started last week in sept. House is done in white, and icicles. Have three colors left to do, Blue going on this week. I try and get house done before leaves drop, takes two to three weeks around here for me to do leaves, so that kills me on lights rate around Halloween, and beginning of Nov.

Trees get wrapped the middle of Nov.

All my lawn stuff, century tree, and arches, go up the week of Thanksgiving. Lights on Saturday night after Thanksgiving.

(47d 47m) if anybody counting...

I can probably set up outside and no one well laugh at me or make jokes, because it has been snowing the past 3 days, and then melt, then snow, then melt ans so on.

The early snow seems to bring out Christmas shoppers.

Anyhow, I am still working on my display building things.....those need to be completed 1st then I can set up the display.

It is cold now, so whether I set up now or in November it makes no difference, it is cold....seems I always seem to set up in the cold and snow.

Just finishing up my blue led tree ...it seems to have made a difference ( in $$$ for power!)in switching over to all blue led's last year. Next I've got to start on those pine trees out back, then the white and green tress out front, then to set up the trains ....OMG.... is it October already?!? I'm late, late, late .....LOL

When are you planning to start hanging Christmas lights? Just kinda wondering when everyone will start.

Already been underway here for weeks. Got a tree lift a few weeks ago, always start with the highest places first and work my way down... afterall with it raining every couple days and breaking records with 93 degree days and 77 degree nights, we are still on once a week lawn mowing duty here so anything that gets in the way of the mower is not good.

Its Pouring rain here in Cali 25-40 mph gusts !!! Most of my Halloween stuff was blowing away . Only thing that has stayed up right now is my arch and the Rail road tracks along front of house -- C9 strips with 2 channels put into them. I am battening down the hatches !!!

Sorry the weather is rough over there but isnt this supposed to be California fire season with everything burning down? You guys have almost been needing a super el nino to wash away the drought and fill Lake Tahoe back up. The El Nino came has already done away with the drought in Florida over the summer and we are expecting an unusually wet dry season this winter. Oh Joy... lots of unusually wet nights coming in December for us.

So I got a little carried away...

Most bushes are done and small side of the house is done(siding)

Just couldn't stop! The rest will have to wait until after Halloween, just wanted to get some of the less obvious work done so I could free up some time for the rest.

You start with the less obvious and I start with the most obvious.....

I will be starting Sunday Nov.8 at about 6:00P.M.

The first string will be at the Eastern most side on the roof.

I will work up there until the kids go to bed at 9:00. Then I will start wrapping the crab apple tree so the kids don't hear me stomping around on the roof;)

Well, I typically start on the Saturday after Thanksgiving as my wife has reserved Black Friday for shopping and it's hard to string lights with 2 kids at your feet. This year, however, I have a lot more than prior years, so I'm thinking I might start on the weekend before Thanksgiving. I initially thought that was too early - that is... until I read everyone's prior responses. :-)
