I'm going to leave the white lights strung along our fence up as long as there's snow all winter long. I'll call them "party lights" if I have to.
They just look so serene and they calm me at night. I don't think about all the work I spent clearing 10" of snow off our driveway today. My 13 year old snowthrower gave up the ghost and I had to buy a new one this morning.
They also light up the yard for our dog too.
