Sudden Appliance Death Week

So it was the dishwasher last monday. Oven last wednesday. And today something smelled fishy in the house.

I caught one of my dogs licking the bottom of my upright freezer in the basement. I opened the door... and OH MY GOD! a gallon of fetid blood and water gushed out. 100 lbs of spoiled food including 10 of the world's best meat loafs. :censored::censored::censored::censored::censored:

So, it is so long to our 25 yo upright freezer that I got for free at an estate sale five years ago.

But our new freezer (that was 10% off at Blowes for being Energy Star) does have both a temp and door alarm... so there.

DAMN. I wanted meatloaf for dinner tomorrow. The key is wrapping the loaf in bacon. MMMMM.
- I emptied the freezer into doubled construction grade trashbags. Thank goodness trash goes out tonight.
- Sprayed the freezer and surrounding area with bleach solution.
- Set up a fan to suck the smell out of the basement - it was right under my kitchen - super yuck.
- Moved the freezer up the six steps out of my walk out basement - it's now laying on it's back in my grass - VERY classy.
- Put down dryzorb, swept, and reapplied.
- New freezer will get delivered Monday. They will take old freezer away.
