OK, kind of a bizarre topic. I know enough to have some water ready in case we lose water-- some for drinking,some for cleaning, some for flushing. But I had no idea how to use that last bit. So, in case anyone else needs the info, here it is: " During an outage, you may flush a toilet, then pour water into the toilet tank (not the bowl) before flushing again. Turn off the water supply to the toilet before flushing. Toilet tanks hold several gallons of water, so plan accordingly. Remember, melted snow or ice can be a source of water during winter outages (but not for drinking). During the summer, you may be able to use water from a pool or hot tub. "
