We have a chest freezer in the basement because our tiny side-by-side upstairs just isn’t big enough. This week, a funny smell appeared near the basement stairs and upon further investigation we discovered said freezer was off. Apparently there’s a short in the outlet or something.

So this morning, I had the pleasure of removing spoiled poultry, fish, beef, pork, and venison from the freezer and running it straight out to the trash. Even though we turned on the freezer and let it re-freeze, it’s easily one of the worst smells I’ve ever encountered. And now it’s everywhere because I just wasn’t prepared for how terrible it would be and didn’t bother to open the basement windows before hand.

I have work to do outside, but I have to venture back down there for tools and supplies first...
