I went over to help Basil move some stuff, but ended up having not nearly as much time to help as I thought I would have. He gave me two book cases. One of them was too long to fit in the Jeep, so I had to take the top down. So, there I am, 3 degrees below zero, driving the Jeep with the top down and a bookcase sticking out.
I can now say authoritatively that it is a Bad Idea to drive with the top down when it is below zero. Don’t let anyone tell you differently.
Fortunately, I didn’t have very far to go, and stashed the bigger bookcase in my Dad’s garage.
The other one, I brought home (having replaced the top on the Jeep) and it is already full.I’m glad I got two. But for the first time in more than a year, I have no books sitting on the floor. Just barely.
