    Default Blinky Flashy on Winter's Day- Spiral Mega Tree Model and Test

    What better way to spend Wintery Saturday, especially since Mrs. Shimmers is working, than to sequence and test said sequence on light show model in my basement. Used about 3000 lights, built a 7' spiral tree ( which will become top half of real spiral tree in 2012 show. Also 5 2' mini trees, 5 stars, and a poor replica of a flowering crab that I will outfit with lights. Anyway the tune (and video) is Carrie Underwood singing, belting out that is, How Great Thou Art. The video combines the video feed for the show, the computer animation of the display and the real working model. I have about 60 channels powered up for this mock run.

    enjoy!

    Great work!
    I think I'm getting behind - While you are already sequencing, I'm still testing different Pixel strings
