And if you do run them outside, don't forget to do a drip loop before 
the cable goes into the building.

This is where you route the cable so it always enters a hole from below, 
so any water on the cable goes to the bottom of the loop and drips off 
and does not run into the house via the hole. I think the recommendation 
is a 6" loop.
