Lights Up

Last night, while walking after dinner, we took a route we hadn't taken in a while, and off in the distance to the southwest I saw a huge Christmas light show. Some house off in that direction had really gone over the top with their display. It looked too far away to walk, so we headed home and tried to drive out to find it.

It took a long time to find our way there, because out first two guesses as to where it was took us into dead ends. Fernley has a lot of these, in the form of partially-built subdivisions that don't connect to each other and are full of cul-de-sacs and dead ends. After three attempts, we finally found the house in question, and we wish we'd brought the camera.

Even though it was challenging getting there, we're glad we saw the show before the lights came down.
