Maybe your springs are all saggy now.

So the manual was telling me to use a double USB to SATA cable ... but I should be fine with a single USB to sata, right?
Probably just a matter of transfer speed

Yeah, freeze warning in effect here. Looks like it won't climb over 50 this weekend.

I had this exact idea. My water heater's chimney doesn't go straight up, so it actually radiates a good amount of heat when it's on. Just needs to be more efficient and have a bypass for summer, haha.

That also helps. The sedan keeps the garage toasty for a good while.
