First Year Comes to a Close

Well in about half an hour, our first animated light display will come to a close. While there is a bit of sadness that all of our work will be coming down tomorrow (or whenever the ground thaws in some cases), the thoughts of what is planned next year have already been dancing around in my head. It’s just as exciting as it was last year as I began to plan the display.

What’s funny is that last year at this time, I had no idea what I was getting myself into, but it turned out to be one of the most rewarding and enjoyable hobbies I’ve ever partaken in. Yes, it gets a little expensive at times, but what hobbies don’t I suppose.

I went out to watch the show one last time tonight, and naturally the stuck channel issue that I was having earlier in December, and thought had gone away, presented itself tonight. I tried my usual fixes and thought it was fixed again, but when I went out to watch, there it was, stuck on again. What’s strange is it’s never the same channel that gets stuck. I think once the lights are down, I’m going to hook up the controllers and run some sequences for a few days to see if I can track down what’s causing it. Anyhow, my last viewing of the show was unfortunately marred by this channel, kind of disappointing, but oh well.

2010’s show should add many more improvements if things go how I hope. We WILL have a mega tree, that I can say for certain. The rest is up in the air, but exciting nonetheless.
