How To Tell If The Power Went Out While Away On A Vacation


Here's the trick:

Fill a cup with water and freeze it.

Once frozen, place a coin on top.

Check the coin's position when you return:

If it's on top, your power was stable, and your food is good.

If it's at the bottom, the power was off long enough for the ice to melt, indicating possible food spoilage.
