I may be wrong, I may be crazy, but when chicken is bad, I can smell it. I mean really smell it. Ugh!

And, yes, I've been through hurricanes and other stuff and had to start eating through my freezer. Think about it. We eat aged beef, right? Have you ever eaten an aged chicken. Start with the poultry. Seriously, it will stink pretty quickly.

MD, given your circumstances (and yes, I've been there), it is always better safe than sorry. You did great by filling the freezer. Everyone should note that a full fridge and freezer are your very, very best friends in extended power outages. When you think a storm is brewing in your area, IMMEDIATELY start filling bottles and any other vessel (i.e., tupperware and other type containers) with water and toss them in your fridge and freezer. Your food will stay colder, longer, and you'll have that water should you need it.

If the storm by-passes you, what are you out? Use the extra water to water your plants.

Cook a piece and feed it to your spouse. If you're still married by morning, the chicken is just fine.
