It's finally time! We are getting the house ready for the holidays and I finally get what I want, ICICLE LIGHTS! (Yes, I am that excited about them). After some trial and error with the gutter clips I got all of the lights hung this weekend. They are LED, they are awesome, and I have 6 or so strands highlighting the awesomeness of the holidays that are coming.
The one thing that doesn't seem right is that since all of the lights are bundled when you get them, the icicles aren't quite falling straight. I tried untwisting some of the wires on the icicles (anywhere between 2-4 lights on each) but that didn't do it. Is there any trick to getting the lights to fall straighter than they are? Should I just be patient and let gravity eventually make them look the way they should? I counted a total of four houses lit up on my 5 mile drive home from work today. I thought that was enough for me and I told my wife that it's time to turn on the lights. She disagrees and says I have to wait until Friday at the earliest. BOO! (hehe)
