Carol Nielson told us about a wonderful deal on plastic drums for water storage and gave us a way to get them and the pump that goes with it. I'm glad she did. Then they sat in the backyard for awhile.
Rebekah said we needed water in them and made a point to fill them up. I'm glad she did. A pipe broke in the front yard and we had to turn off all water from the street main until we could get it repaired.
Because these two ladies thought ahead, we had water to flush toliets, wash dishes and bottled water to drink and brush our teeth. Luckily we didn't need to wash clothes and we just waited to shower till after the repairs.
We need to find a way to rig a shower for emergencies................
