If you were going to have water problems it would have occurred this morning when we were around -11 to -14 F. If you are still concerned, let your cold water faucet furthest from the hot water tank have a steady drip overnight. Not fast, just a steady drip. Also, open the cabinet doors under each sink to allow the warm air from the room to enter the cabinet space. This helps a lot and will often prevent pipes from freezing just by doing this, especially if the sink is on an outside wall like in the kitchen, but it also helps in bathrooms.

Well, I still don't have water coming through my kitchen sink and I believe the dishwasher failed last night, too. I have notified a friend about the problem. I hope nothing bursts.

That is how cold it is here.

Currently says it is cloudy and 19F, hopefully it will continue to warm up but won't start snowing again.
