We had a wind storm here last night and power got knocked out for large swaths of the city. My power was out from about 11 PM until almost 7 AM.
I read online that meat and such should be tossed after about four hours in a fridge without power, and my fridge and freezer were feeling pretty warm (my apartment is inexplicably always 25 degrees no matter what the outside temperature is), so I'll probably toss my meat to be on the safe side - except my ham sandwich which was already made and in an insulated lunch bag inside my fridge, so I'm hoping it's okay. (It better be as I'm travelling tomorrow! People in my office have been dropping like flies from a nasty virus - I've avoided it so far but feel like I've been fighting something off for the past few days, I don't need food poisoning on top of that!)
Anyway, what I'm really wondering about is my insulin. I had about four boxes of Apidra pen cartridges in there. Obviously they will be fine for a month, but what about after that? I'd hate to throw them all out.
