You guys that say 24/7, have them lit?   I see some of you say yes, but what about the others?  I put mine out when we are expecting guests (can't see the house unless youre specifically coming to see me) but I take it down at night. 

if they are not lit at night they are supposed to be taken down. when it rains they are to be taken down but most dont.

Weren't you ever a boy scout?  Down at night, down in rain, don't let it touch the ground, only dispose of by proper flag burning ceremony or give to the BSA, American Legion or VOFW to handle it.

I'm almost certain they removed the rain restriction allowing the flag to fly in rainy conditions.
