Popps, you are a very innovating handyman. You are right about incandescent lights creating a fire hazard. I think your Christmas tree lights are much less apt to be a hazard than a regular light bulb. That regular bulb would create a real hot "hot" spot if a blanket or towel touched it. Best to keep the insulating material away from the bulbs no matter which ones you use. I've put regular bulbs on the ground under shrubs that I covered with canvas drop clothes. Works great. It's even better if you can keep the insulating material dry, it is a better insulator when dry. Put plastic over it and weigh the plastic down around the edges with bricks or wood. Good luck. Mother Nature can be a BEAR at times. And I think this is one of those times!!|
