Whether you’re evacuating because of a hurricane or you’re just leaving for vacation, you’ll want to know if the power went out while you were away for any substantial amount of time. Fill a cup with water, put it in the freezer until it’s solid, then pop a coin on top. Leave it in there, and when you get back, check.I will leave my rectory and evacuate Richmond Hill Sunday afternoon only to go 20 miles north to downtown Savanna's Cathedral rectory which is suppose to evacuate too, but don't say anything.
However how will I know if the electricity goes out in the rectory spoiling the food in the frig?
Freeze a cup of water then place a quarter on top of the ice and leave in freezer. If electricity goes off, the quarter will sink as ice melts. If close to bottom of cup, throw all food away. Cool, no?
By the way, the Cathedral's 1pm EF Mass is canceled Sunday.
