Stupid storms

Been without power since 9 last night. Rental house is not wired for a generator, so I had to run cords everywhere. My small chest freezer was not wanting to kick on, on the gennie. How long will it last if you don't open it? Thanks.

If you get to the 18-24 hour mark I would go up town and get 3-4 big bags of ice and thrown them on top. Keep the ice in the bags that way you won't have too big of a mess if it melts, but at least you won't lose anything.

Worst case is it comes back on and you have some ice on hand for coolers!
