Tonight’s display in doubt due to heavy rain & storms

Heavy rain and thunderstorms are approaching over the next hour. There is a chance that there will not be a display tonight as a result of this wet weather.

A final decision will be made closer to 8:30 tonight.

UPDATE 1 8:30pm: The display is running, but may switch off before 10:30 pm if the thunderstorms return.

UPDATE 2 9:40pm: Heavy rains have returned so the display has been switched off for the night early. The lights return tomorrow at 8:30 pm.

Full Steam Ahead

It is now full steam ahead with the display set up. All roof lights have been installed as of today, and there is a change here! What is the change? You’ll have to keep an eye on the 2011 photo gallery page for addition of new photos in coming days.

As in other years, the scheduled light up time will be at 8:30 pm on December 1. This will not occur if there are strong winds or wet weather present. Unlike previous years, there will be no official launch song.

And so it begins…

As of today the 2011 Christmas display is being gradually set up. The mains-power 240V AC controllers have been installed while the new 24V DC controllers are almost completed. They should be installed by the weekend along with the DC controllers which were introduced last year.

A 2011 gallery page is now available, this year using a different page design. Let me know your comments on the new style of gallery. Former years continue to use an older design.
