It's a tragedy of epic proportions. My second refrigerator/freezer downstair was unplugged...or the fuse blew...or something. I lost 5 gallons of huckleberries! They had been carefully packaged, frozen and hoarded for the last 2 seaons of huckleberry picking. I've made huckleberry muffins, huckleberry cheesecake, huckleberry syrup. I'm very sad. Picking huckleberries is a lot of work. Some people may never get more than a gallon during picking season.
