    Erring upon the side of caution would be my course of action. Among friends and family more than one has burned up a compressor on freezer trying to put too much unfrozen product in it at one time. That was always the big plus that meat processor had hard frozen our beef before we picked it up. Although when corn, tomatoes, okra, etc... was in, we would push it hard as we put up what we ate in winter. At the homeplace now, there are three large uprights and one chest full of beef and garden produce. When Blizzard of '93 hit, my mother could not understand why the news kept covering all the strange things people were eating to get by. I explained not everyone had three huge chest freezers full of garden produce, beef, chicken, etc... The generator kept power on, the wood stove kept us warm, and we ate well. Although we only were without power from about midnight Friday to 7 pm Sunday. A lot of those around us were without for several weeks.
