Old Trick
A little off topic, but maybe helpful to somebody. We leave one freezer going in the house we're not occupying, they're both seasonal now, so we're talking 6 months at a time. Just before we're leaving I freeze a plastic cup of water, and a quarter next to it, once frozen I put the quarter on the top of the ice. If it's still sitting on the top of the ice when return, we know the freezer never stopped long enough to do any damage. If it isn't on top, well the power was out for a long time...
