“Losing electricity doesn’t mean losing all the meat...”
You are so right! Our extra freezer went up last Summer while we were on a vacation. Don’t freezers break when you are gone for a few days and it isn’t in the Winter?! Anyways, lost four frozen turkeys, six chickens, steaks, roasts, chicken legs/breasts and frozen packs of blueberries, and fish. I won’t even get into the smell! Took a few weeks of fans, a ton of baking soda to breathe again. Ick!
If you haven’t done it, check your homeowner’s insurance policy to see if all or some of your loss is covered. My policy, with USAA, covers up to $500.00 of loss. Also, when I bought my present freezer, a $200 loss coverage was included with the warranty. Good luck.
