Genius Trick to Use During a Power Outage

Hurricane Florence is about to hit the East Coast hard. So a Facebook post from 2016 by a North Carolina woman is making the rounds again.  She posted this back when Hurricane Matthew was about to hit, and it is an absolutely brilliant and helpful idea.

Her name is Sheila Russell, and she suggested that everyone put a frozen cup of water in their freezer with a quarter on top. If the power goes out or you are forced to evacuate you can easily tell if all the food in your freezer went bad by simply looking in the cup. If the quarter is still on top or less than half way down the cup, your food is fine. If the quarter is on the bottom or close to it, your food defrosted and isn’t safe to eat any longer.

Isn't that brilliant?! Way to go, Sheila. Here's the original post:
