We’ve always planned that when we move, we would not take our old freezers but we’d buy new ones at the new location. One of ours is about 14 years old, one is about 9 years old. We have a third that was a scratch and dent model that’s about 6 years old and has never worked right despite having been worked on several times. We should have sent that one back but we didn’t.
Now . . it’s time to move and freezers are very hard to find. In fact, they’ve been impossible for me to find.
There’s an appliance store in Joplin that I’ve been calling and they told me several months ago that they suggested I order the freezer and it would be in sometime in September. Home Depot told me they should have some in the Fall.
Today I called both the appliance store and Home Depot. The appliance store said they’ve given up giving estimated dates. I asked . . those who ordered and paid for the freezers several months ago, are they getting them in the time frame you had anticipated? No! That’s what I was afraid of and that’s why I didn’t order one. If I’m going to have to move our current freezers, I probably don’t even need a new one!
Home Depot said basically . . your guess is as good as ours when it comes to when we might get them. One of them told me they weren’t very hopeful they’d have freezers before the end of the year.
How crazy is that??
So, my plan is to get one freezer empty . . in what . . three weeks?? We’ll move that one on the first trip, then work on emptying a second freezer and move that on the next trip. The third freezer . . it’s not making the trip so we can keep it here and use it when we come back and forth for a while.
