Yesterday evening we came home from swimming practice to discover there was no water pressure.

A 4" main had burst and all 763 people in my service area were without water from 8:15 pm to 5:00 am this morning.

Happily we have six 5-gallon jugs of water for our water-cooler in the garage we maintain for hurricane season.

One jug is good for two flushes if you MUST flush down a trout.  Otherwise it's "if it's yellow, let it mellow".  Yes, ick, but you save water by just flushing urine once a day.

But we also had plenty of potable water for such a short interruption.

It also underscores that you're not always going to get a notice that a service will be disrupted.
