My brother's iMac arrived - UPS person put in Mom's trunk because too heavy for her to carry

Lowest temperature next week is 39 degrees in south Georgia. Most of the week it will be in the 60s. Think it's okay to leave it there?

It should be fine, as long as the car is parked in a garage, or in a shaded area. The car is locked, yes? iMac box is not visible, yes?

They sit in frozen fedex trucks all the time. Should be fine.

Let it come to room temperature before plugging it in.

And leave it in its packing during the time it is coming back up to room temperature. Helps avoid condensation and other problems connected with the temperature difference.

Then poach with two eggs, salmon mousse, three large white and two purple asparagus spears, and top with hollandaise sauce.
Enjoy!

A nice present for your Mom for Christmas would be a lightweight folding dolly/hand cart. Look for one with large wheels, better to get over curbs and up steps, and a large platform. Built-in retaining straps are a nice bonus feature, but bungie cords are cheap and readily available everywhere so that's not a "pass/fail" criteria.

An iMac! thumbs up At least your mother doesn’t have junk in her trunk.

I set one up with a box strapped to it so my partner's mom could take her trash and recycling to the massive front loading dumpsters when she had her apartment. Little things like this really help to stay independent longer.

My walker has a big removable basket and a drink holder so I could get my own food after hip surgery. Will need it again soon for hip #2, and my partner's knee #1.
