Just to illustrate how cold it is... Yup, that's my kitchen. And yup, that's ice. We bought this house and didn't manage to get heat installed in it (mostly due to the roof incident) so the entire house except for our room is ICE cold. You can see your breath. We believe our pipes froze, but there's a good chance that they didn't but the water company may have had a pipe break, as a neighbor is also without water and some others do. We've shut the water off regardless. I've set up a room for Hope and Rudy, and will be bringing them in at night and giving them a nice heat lamp. I imagine they'd be fine outside, but with Hope due to kid and the wind, I'd rather not risk it. They can't possibly hurt that room, especially since there's lots to be done anyways.
