Last night, our power went out. We were watching a movie, and all of sudden heard a boom and then everything in the house went dark. It turns out the wire running electricity to our house went kaput, so we didn't have electricity for almost 9 hours.
We had just gone to the grocery store and loaded up on groceries for the week.
Today, we cleaned out the fridge, and it made me think -- the next time the power goes out and there's a chance that it'll be out for more than 4 hours, we'll be heading to the grocery store to get ice so we can save some of the food and place them in coolers.
What would YOU save from the fridge? (For us, I think it'd be whatever costs the most to replace. . . plus all cheeses )
BTW, here's a link to the CDC's website regarding food safety when your power goes out.
