I can't find 16 gauge heavy duty extension cord!


I got my 100' 6/3 cables for about $10-15 each. Buddy's computer store went out of buisness and he used these to power the subpanels I have for LAN parties. I know he paid a lot more for the cable when he bought them, something like 5 or 6 dollars per foot.

Hmmm... I can hardly think of more of a waste of coal and oil burned in a power plant than 25-30 kW of Christmas lights

I haven't downsized at all
The green lighted "tree" used to be C-9's & used close to 3000 watts
Now its LED's & uses 84 watts
I'm known as the Christmas house on my street
Even our sub shop calls us the Christmas house for deliveries
BIG Christmas display & Halloween
I also decorate for July 4th, Easter, Memorial & Labor Day
Valentines day at some point





That's a 12x18' flag
