No matter how well you think you are prepared, when the power goes out, it’s just down right unnerving. We’ve had 2 days of ups and downs with outages in our neighborhood…dang it! By late Wednesday afternoon, the power was restored and I am so thankful we didn’t lose any food from our refrigerators and freezers! Still, I was a little concerned about what was really happening with our food during the 3 hours that the power was out, so I did a little research. Friends, I hope y’all don’t have to deal with this kinda stress but if you do, here’s some information that you might find helpful…
Here is a helpful link from Food Safely.gov

Hopefully, we won’t have to deal with any more outages for a while but if we do…I’m prepared! Better safe than sorry, right?
