  •  Plus the new refrigerator is probably (5+ / 0-)
    Thank the many little goddesses we had to replace the fridge yesterday. We don't have a lot to lose in it (unlike last year).  
    better insulated than the old one was, so it keep food fresh longer without power.

      Remember not to fill them all the way because freezing water expands. If you lose power, the frozen water will help keep your frozen foods cold for at least a few more hours.

      Don't open the freezer or you lose all the cold unless it's a box freezer with a top lid.
