Keep food cold during a power outage

I got this great tip from the yahoo group.

I know this is off-topic, but I just have to say that if you are in
the path of hurricane Rita (like I am), turn up your fridge and
freezer to the coldest setting that it can go, from now. That way, if
your electricity goes out for a few hours or maybe even most of the
day, your food will/should still be okay. Just don't keep opening up
your fridge, lol. I learned the hard way with hurricane katrina and
had to throw out all of my food in both the freezer and
fridge...costly mistake! But, the power was out for almost 2 days, so
maybe it would not have been able to stay good that long anyway, but
who knows!
