With all the snow and then sub-zero temps - I never got out to the deck to string lights on the trees. Last night was my last chance - snow was not deep and it was warm (25 degrees) - I knew if I didn't do it then - I wouldn't do it this year.
TIMING IS EVERYTHING
From my lower level - this is what I woke up to .............the window sill is at ground level.
you can barely see my neighbor's roof
