Maybe I’m Wrong

I read a story about a man in Texas who powered up his house during the recent 2021 power outage with his Ford F150 hybrid pickup with a power option.

He states he used the generator to power some lights, coffee pot, TV, toaster oven, space heater, and refrigerator. Said he ran the fridge for about 10 to 12 hours per day to keep the freezer food frozen.

Now maybe I’m wrong, but would it not have been smarter to take the food out of the freezer and set it in a container outside? After all, the temperature never got above freezing during this time.

“We were trying to cool the planet, you know, to stop Global Warming, and well—Texas is freezing its ass off right now.”
“What went wrong?”
“I was typing away on my oil-based cell phone while sucking my milkshake through a big plastic straw and accidentally spilled it all over the “I don’t know what the F$%K I’m talking about button.”
“GRETA!”
