"Better to find out if it rusts on the way home before we get it on the roof, rather than after we get it up there and nail it down."I'm building a shed in my backyard for storage. While waiting for the rain to pass through , I went to Lowe's to get the tin for the roof. My wife, bless her heart, asked me if needed to cover the tin up with a tarp. I was tired and decided not to reply.
I try hard to keep my mouth shut as my wife frantically and obsessively stuffs the groceries into her “insulated” shopping bags for the ten minute ride home. Those bags probably have an R value of 0.1, but she seems to think otherwise.
Growing up, we’d bring home ice cream, milk, etc. in paper bags, on the black vinyl seats of the station wagon, In the July Florida heat, and nothing ever spoiled.
My wife also thinks that if it’s 40 degrees outside, then groceries inside the car won’t spoil. As if, even without the car heater on, the cabin temp = outside air temp.
And they left milk sitting outside on the front stoop. It's possible that it went from cow to your house faster in the old days, but I don't know for sure. I'm sure it goes from cow to grocery store fairly fast, but then it sits in the store a day or two.We had milk and eggs delivered by the grocer who had a guy hired to load them on a bicycle and bring them to your door. Food spoils quicker these days.
