Christmas Tree Lane Residents Prep for Next Storm

<div class="StoryBlock">
<font size="2"><p>As the Valley prepares for yet another storm, many residents who put up Christmas lights are also bracing for more rain to drench their outdoor decorations.</p> <p>Dean Alexander lives on Christmas Tree Lane in Fresno and has one of the largest spectacles on the street.</p> <p>He exclaimed, &quot;We welcome the rain, okay! And actually, the streets are wet, the lights shining off the streets, it’s wonderful!&quot;</p> <p>Alexander agrees we need the water in this time of drought, but wishes the weather were more friendly to his decorations.</p> <p>&quot;If a tree comes down, the cords come with it too. And so like four years ago when the big winds, it was havoc, it looked like a hurricane hit Christmas Tree Lane,&quot; said Alexander.</p> <p>Alexander now prepares for anything a storm may bring him. Since water and electricity doesn’t mix, he has to make sure all of his outlets are elevated and doesn’t touch large puddles of water, or else a circuit will break and Alexander will have to check every single outlet to see where the wet spot is, and dry it out.</p> <p>&quot;I want to share Christmas Tree Lane to the Valley, something special, nobody else in the world has what we have,&quot; said Alexander.</p></font><br /></div>
