I'm upset this horrible snow storm and wind chills made my pipes freeze. Time to get out my check book and call a plumber. Anyone else in the same boat?

i am and have been for these last like 4 days we only just got cold back still no hot water... i live in a trailer so it happens every time it gets really cold. We just put heat tape on the pipes and bought portable heaters from home depot and have blankets and towels wrapped around the pipes. now that we have cold ive been leaving the faucet on a steady low stream so they wont freeze again ill just be happy when michigan gets out of subzero

 Thankfully no. We just have ice on the outside of our windows and our porch door is frozen shut. Everything else is fine.

A plumber is coming over tomorow to fix it. Been 3 days with no water,and too cold to get out of the house. I really need shower and so does my husband and toddler. My son is sick so I don't want to take him out in the cold. I'm praying that no pipes burst.

I finally got it fixed after 3 days, my pipes burst though. We had to use up our savings. Upsetting we wanted to go on a vacation but now have to start over.
