Correcto, generalissimo!

She's not even that unhappy about parking the car outside.  She just can't
figure out _why_ I want something like that ... and sometimes, I can't
either!  I'm sure my "collection" is pretty paltry compared to some other
folks on the list, and way less than half of it is even hooked up, but it
takes up space and time.  No money, particularly, though.

We don't have "real" winter here around Puget Sound; we're only 2 hours from
Canada by car, but it seldom gets down to freezing.  I expect a couple of
big systems would keep a small, insulated building warm here, all by
themselves.  Add a woodstove, and you can have heat a-plenty.  I guess a lot
would depend on what it would take to make you comfortable when you're out
there.  I expect the machinery would be OK if the room were 50 degrees,
since all the moving parts are more-or-less self-warming.
