this is a string of Xmas lights from Sam's Club. Last year the box had three strings of 60, this year it was one string of 180. The box says that it is rated as 14 watts. which isn't a lot compared to my 2 watt flashlight, which does have a lot of penetration.
So the strip I made with the blues does light up the sand pretty well for 60 with all blue, so i am thinking the 180 whites will do a better job than the florescent, but obviously not a better job than other HO
bulbs. I drilled the 180 holes yesterday and started gluing in the lights. I will work on it more on monday. Remember I am unemployed, so I have time not money. As I was drilling, I wished I had a piece of pegboard.
