Why is this deep freeze open?


I went downstairs yesterday in the late afternoon to see if I had some pecans in this deep freeze.  I opened the door and water ran down the door onto the floor. "Oh, oh, that can't be a good sign," I muttered to myself! Then the smell hit me!! Whuff!! Ewwww!! Rotting, moldy veggies and fruit.  I yelled for Dave and we spent the next hour dumping the thawed bags into garbage bags and swabbing up the water, which was red--either from raspberries or cherries--or both!! Yuck!! I hadn't been in the deep freeze for a couple of weeks, so everything had a nice long time to thaw!! All this year's peas, beans, corn, and some veggies from the year before--all gone. Saskatoons from a year ago, raspberries from this year gone too. A lot of work--planting, weeding, picking, chopping, blanching--all gone:((  Dave has taken all the bags to the dump this morning. Guess what I will be shopping for in the new year?? Bah humbug!!!

AAAAAAAAH! What happened? Did it just up and stop working? I didn't know they could do that. I have a deep freeze full of grass fed beef...and the thought of the deep freeze just keeling over one day doesn't bear thinking about!

All those fruits and veggies...oh...I'm just so sad about it...all that work...

Well, on the bright side, at least you have Boxing Week sales now, so you should be able to get a good deal...

Yeah we kind of take freezers for granted don't we? Turns out this deep freeze was low on Freon and of course we can't refill Freon anyone, so it's to the dump it goes! Yes, at least the timing is good!! Haha!
