Animated Light Display Tear Down

From Dave:

I have put together a proposed list and order to take it all down.

Steps with the same number can be done at the same time.  Cutting aluminum straps would be quicker and safer while multiple people are up on ladders at the same time.  Drop the signs with ropes.

1 cut power and replace street light bulb
1.5 remove all controllers
2 remove laptop
2 cut quad copter power lines free from the netting
2 remove "nova", "maker shop", and "reston" signs by cutting aluminum straps
2 remove tree power at the base
3 remove tree base hoop
3 remove robot netting structure (cut aluminum straps)
3 remove package netting structure (cut ...)
4 remove quad copters
4 remove top of tree
5 remove aluminum straps and replace screws
5 pick up trash (cut wire ties, etc.)

    Thanks to everyone who helped take down the xmas lights. This was a large, unglamorous chore that needed to get done.

    Just stopped by novalabs. There is a lot of snow and ice along the building on ramp under the signs. Not sure what the game plan is to deal with that.

    I'll come help out (and retrieve my laptop). We're going to want to make a fast job of this, since there appears to be a major storm moving in Wednesday night.
