Believe it or not, it happened here in San Diego.  A friend on the west side of town called and said he had no running water.  Went there to see what was happening and to my SURPRISE, his pipes froze.  Solution-borrow your lady's blow dryer and heat up the exterior of the pipe.  Problem solved-friendship saved!!!

Another simple cheap solution is to open up the doors under the cabinets that the plumbing is in that is prone to freezing. Or just up the thermostat in the whole house.

Many have called this morining asking about frozen pipes. The best preventitive measures are to temporarily close all exterior vents coming into the house, wrap and inusulate exterior faucets along the walls of the house, place space heater near exterior walls (from the inside, you made need to put them underneath cabinets and around tubs/showers), and las make sure the water heater and pressure tanks are well-insulated or have a heat source, even a shop light, nearby.
