In order to know, put 2 or 3 ice cubes in a baggie in the freezer. When you come home, check that baggie. If there is a frozen puddle, you'll know the electricity was off long enough to defrost your food. You may not want to keep those pork chops!
With digital clocks being so sophisticated now, they may not blink anymore after a power outage, so the only way you'd know is if you check your little ice bag.

This is a very good idea! Especially since your freezer stays colder longer when the door is not being opened if you are not there. If it has been off long enough for the ice to melt, everything else has thawed too. Thanks!
