Gathering water everyday- 19th-Century Women

.
We had a huge storm here 6 days ago. Many are still without power.  If you live in the country, as we do, the water pump simply does not operate without electricity.  Finding bottled water is the only solution.  The situation helps me better understand the time-consuming chores of the past needed just to live everyday.
