Anyone ever defrost a deep freezer? I've never done it before, which was obvious by the state of my freezer, so today I decided to defrost it. WOW! Was I ever not prepared for the amount of water that melted out of it. My never been wet basement looked like it flooded! I started throwing down towels and blankets trying to catch some of the water and it still went everywhere. I was fishing out the ice that came off in chunks and throwing it in the sink to melt so it wasn't on the floor and it didn't seem to help. Maybe it's because it's an upright freezer, so it all just comes running out, or maybe it's always like this when you defrost and I just didn't know what I was getting myself into, but DH was having a really good time laughing at me and DS thought the puddle was fun until he realized it was really cold to sit in. It was not a good project to do on the day of a showing!
