Why is my upright freezer leaking a "lot" of water from underneath?

My upright freezer is leaking a "lot" of water from the bottom! I don't think it is quite as cold as it usually is, but the food is still frozen. I hear a noise, but not sure if it is just a fan, or motor, or compressor. Don't think it sounds as it normally does. The water covered my entire garage floor...I can feel cool air coming out the vents on the inside, but the foggy stuff isn't circulating.

Clogged or Freezing Defrost Drain

During the freezer’s defrost cycle, the defrost water exits through the defrost drain. Sometimes, the defrost water can freeze over the drain. If the defrost drain is clogged with ice, the defrost water will overflow the drain and leak from the bottom of the freezer. To thaw the ice inside the defrost drain, use a turkey baster and hot water to flush the drain. If your defrost drain freezes regularly, consider installing a drain heater to melt the ice.

Where do you live an how cold is it in your garage?
