  1. Sadly I hadn't had time to make it to Lowe's or Home Depot. Our Walmart was pretty well picked clean today. Some mini lights, but I really wanted some rope lights. Completely out. Sent from my Moto Z (2) using Tapatalk
  2. Nice thing about HD ok you can ship to store for free even on clearance items. I did it last year with Christmas stuff. Sent from my Moto Z (2) using Tapatalk
  3. Waiting for 75% to get more of the app lights candy canes. At $15 a set I'll just replace a few each year. Easier than changing brands entirely. I have 8 sets now Sent from my Moto Z (2) using Tapatalk
  4. Checked one of ours this afternoon and it was pretty well picked over already. IIRC last year they got another shipment a few days before Christmas. Maybe a fluke. If they don't get more this year then I'm done. Nothing but string lights and a few odds and ends. One reindeer and sleigh. That's it. Sent from my Moto Z (2) using Tapatalk
  5. You should be able to ship to store for free Sent from my Moto Z (2) using Tapatalk
  6. I thought the same thing! Sent from my Moto Z (2) using Tapatalk
  7. Ugh, thanks allot guys! Two more to store away! HD in Destin had about a dozen left when I went in, liberated two. Been wanting candy canes for a while actually, so good timing! Converted to LED... Pics never work so well when it's too dark out. Sent from my Moto Z (2) using Tapatalk

    Well I'm 90% done this year, finally. My applights ALL suddenly will not connect. All of them worked fine last year, but will not connect. They show as available in settings and will pair, but still do not show connected. I tried resetting them and reinstalling the app with no change. I suppose it was inevitable, these things done have the greatest reputation. And if I can only use them in Christmas lights mode, that's ok I guess. But I'd prefer to be able to connect and change them. Anyone have any ideas? I have several candy cane strings and a tech tree. Sent from my Moto Z (2) us
  12. Thanks for the kind words. I love the classic look of it. An interesting combo with the palm tree lit! I'm honestly not sure what pitch ours is. Most of it is fairly step. One section on the back is less so. It's just steep enough to be uncomfortable. I did most of it sitting down straddling the peak. I should also mention I used the Walmart holiday time all purpose clips. They seem to work best out of what is locally available. They work well on the gutter and on the shingles. They could me just a millimeter or two taller to give clearance for the C9s, but they work ok. The ot
  13. This year I decided to light the entire Ridgeline instead of just the gutter line. Good bit of work, and not my favorite place to be (roof), but I like the look. These are all pre-lit strings, ecosmart LED C9s. It did require some back tracking. I think next year I'll do custom extensions with spt1 to make it easier. How do other people light the roof line?

  14. Nope, not gonna pay $45 for one shipped!! I know they are out there though, have to run a 12v converter too though Sent from my Moto Z (2) using Tapatalk
  15. You can get plastic welding rods in various colors. Amazon has tons of them Sent from my Moto Z (2) using Tapatalk
