How awful, Jill! Bet you wish you had bought that freezer a couple of
years ago. :-(

Is all of your frozen stuff thawed or can it be put into the freezer? If
not completely thawed, you could buy some dry ice to put in the cooler
instead of regular ice. That would preserve it until you get the new unit
in place.
