We're right in the middle of a disastrous hurricane season, and we all need help to remain safe and calm. Country Living Magazine has come up with a way to prevent you from getting food poisoning, and check to see if the food in your freezer is still safe to eat after a hurricane or other natural disaster. If you had to evacuate your home and leave for a period of time, and weren't sure whether the electricity stayed on or not, this could be a lifesaver.

Basically, what you do is put a quarter on top of a cup of frozen water, and put it in your freezer. If you electricity has been off, and the ice melts, the quarter will sink to the bottom, and you'll know that your food is probably not safe to eat. If it remains on top, then your electricity has stayed on. Simple yet effective! Be safe out there, y'all!
