Re: chilled eggs?
No I don't have a min max temp gauge, sadly, but in this case they arrived
some 30 hours after shipping with a 20 hour heat pack, so I assumed
(classic scientific thing to do) that they'd been losing heat after that.
62F is what they were when they arrived, but they may well have been
chilled more than that and rewarmed in a building, but I suspect not much
warming would have taken place.
