Prepare Your Freezer for Hurricane Season

Each year preparing for hurricane season, I fill plastic containers (ice cream buckets, milk jugs), with water to freeze. Should we lose power, the ice can be used to refrigerate food and drinks while the other containers help keep the freezer cold. Remember a full freezer keeps cold the longest.

I went through Hurricane Katrina (& moved back to Boston after it!). You are absolutely right. Being prepared makes all of the difference. I hope you escape all hurricanes this year. Good luck.

Another tip is to put all the contents of your freezer in large black trash bags and then put it all back in the freezer. In the event of a prolonged power outage, you can just lift the bags out of the freezer right into the trash when you return.
