Why not just drive to her house and fill up some buckets? Better yet, why not just go to her house, cook and take a shower?
Well, it wasn't hours and hours. I went out with some friends that evening and we got back to my place and saw the report on the news that the water would be shut off later that morning. So I got as much water as I could out of the faucets and put them in the fridge. It didn't take that long. I only used the pool water for flushing. Taking a shower was interesting. I used gallon milk jugs and heated the water on the stove, wet myself with it and washed, rinsed, and dried off. I had to do something similar when I broke my ankle last year only the water was already hot and back then I didn't have to worry about getting my cast wet. I didn't go to my sister's till about a week later to take a real shower.
