The Short Answer: Almost Impossible.
The Story Begins Here. Waiting on a Long Line to Enter Costco.
Carts Wiped down with Clorox. We finally get the Golden Ticket to Enter.
Careful to Stay Six Feet Apart, We Navigate the Aisles.
Select what food and paper goods are still available.
And Hurry Home to Stock the Fridge.
But of Course Once the Refrigerator is Fully Stocked, it Dies.
57 degrees and climbing.
After a Repairman opined that it would be cheaper to buy a New One than Fix the Old, we bite the bullet and select a Floor Model.
Free Delivery. Free Removal of the Old. In One Day. One Fell Swoop.
Fabulous Masked Delivery Guys remove the old and bring in the new.
All going according to Plan.
The Hot Fridge Out.
New One Waiting to go in.
The He-Men Women Haters. Goofy Fun.
Delivery of the New Fridge.
Whoops. I failed to measure the kitchen door openings.
It Doesn’t Fit. AHHH!!!
No Matter How Many Gyrations they try.
Day 2. Back to the Store. Masks On. Measurements and Tape Measure Engaged. A New-for-Us Second Floor Model is Selected.
The Old Fridge filled with Food and Dry Ice sits Patiently in the Great Room.
No In-Store Shopping Photos. Shopping in a Pandemic is Scary and Serious.
Old Fridge Back Out the Door. Dry Ice really did save the day!
The Final One. Cooling Down. Making Ice. Fits Just Fine. Snug in its Spot.
Staying Safe. Staying Home. Working from Home. School from Home.
Trying to Chill.
How are You Doing in this Craziness?
Congratulations on the new fridge! I recently did that, but because I don’t have a man around to help me with things like measuring everything at least 20 times, I spent weeks measuring and remeasuring, until finally I got the nerve to actually buy one. You know space here is limited, so I was very, very careful. Worked fine and I love the new fridge … I’m sure you do too! Other than the line outside, doesn’t look too crowded. I need to go, have to force myself after my last trip to Costco! Certain things only they have, so likely this week I’ll brave it! Enjoy that fridge and stay safe!
Wow! Four days to get the fridge replaced…good thing we only need to do this infrequently. The install guys were colorful, to say the least
