No hot water

Yeah, not fun. Apparently a plumber came out yesterday and wasn't going to be able to get the part he needed until today. So this morning I got up with the first alarm (normally I snooze for a while), filled up a stockpot with water and put it on the stove...and then I snoozed while it heated. It's amazing how thorough of a shower I had with maybe two gallons of water, stingily wetting myself with a washcloth and rinsing with a few cup-fulls of water. It made me wonder how much water I use during my normal routine, and how wasteful that is by comparison.

[Imported comment* originally authored by Mike.] Why not just take a quick cold shower? Why all the hoops of fire (no pun intended) for a little warm water?
I would think based on your experience in Africa, you woulda just jumped in, washed up, jumped out.
