Hi all. We're going to be replacing some edison bulbs in our patio with LED lights. I'm not very familiar with safety when it comes to LED's. This article from LED Lights Unlimited was pretty good about checking the bulbs and wiring, but I'm interested in knowing how they'll do outside this winter and the maintenance required. We're supposed to get a lot of snow this winter. How safe are most LED light strings when it comes to snow?

@gretsch just make sure what you have or buying is approved for outdoor use. I have them myself
