The lights are up! The husband put them up on the coldest and windiest day we've had thus far. But best be on the roof in cold windy weather than rain, right? I came home from a little holiday shopping and found Max outside helping daddy. He eventually went inside to warm-up and I was left to watch the husband walking around all over the roof (ready to make the call to 911 if need be.)
They are quite pretty. They've only tripped the GFC a half dozen times or so due to the rain.
That's Christmas in the Northwest for you. ;-)
