ok, there are two sides of the fence here...
It could have been a lot worse (considering yet another storm is headed this way AGAIN). Will people be prepared this time??
1. people lost food due to spoilage during the hydro outage pre-Christmas til now. ok, gottcha.
2. I understand (kinda) how because even eggs/milk can freeze in below 0 temps (if you put it outside), but $100.00 loss?
So some people are p'd off that welfare people are getting an extra $100 bucks in gift-cards to make up for this loss.
I am on the fence, I guess. I (personally) wouldn't have 'lost' any food, I would know how to store it (even if it were such delicate food)
outside safely. We are talking here about the City of Toronto and area and there are no bears (even racoons and skunks are currently hibernating)
Perhaps others didn't know how to store it? Some tend to think these people are 'jackin' the system for extra funds. Although there is the
argument that some/many lived in apartments without balconies.
So. How do you properly store food (in the city) in such circumstances?
This is an important question for those of us denying the Global Warming cues and prefer to think just the opposite is occuring (especially when you
live in this climate 6 months of the year).
Survivalists out there have opinions?
1.meat/frozen leftovers: hang in tree (how to avoid squirrels and birds (IF you have the property to do so), if not, well....???
2. milk/eggs: suggest mixing (lightly to avoid air) and freeze in small batches (lasts a year)
3. Bread: dog/cat crate hung up, locked tight from critters and it should be ok outside, frozen.
any other suggestions?? Survivalists out there have opinions? or good websites?
