Since the Barony has also acquired a dedicated storage unit, we've 
installed a very small chest freezer there for use by the cooks of feasts.
The savings off the FIRST FEAST payed for more than the cost of the 
freezer. The savings since have payed for the electrical usage.
Then the populace gets otter pops at court at September War (very welcome 
when it is 100+ degrees).
