    you know it. Just came in after finishing mine. Had to throw out 7 strands.

    I didnt number mine but I should have since I immediately found out that I ran too many last year and only have a limited fuse life in the first strand on the roof.

    I am throwing all of the lights out after this year and buying all new L.E.D. lights, 40-60% less money on utilities, and you can run 30 consecutive strands off one plug.

    I'm done and it doesnt really look like its 7 strands less than last year, but I know.....

    I would normally have mine up by now but after having to throw a few strands away each year for the last 4-5 years now don't really want to spend 2,3,4 hundred to replenish the supply. Oh and the hassle factor has to figure into the equation...

    Mines done almost and I still have one socket left to run power from. I only have 16 strands off of one plug and its run off an extension cord for an indoor lamp, Its not a fire hazzard until it melts right?
