I though it was common knowledge, based on my conversation with a neighbor, but you should be running water in your home to help prevent frozen pipes during this arctic cold. The water should be flowing in a steady stream, about 1/4" thick stream of constant water flow. My elderly neighbor has mobility issues and does not go into her basement. Her water was coming out very slowly. Luckily the pipe didn't burst and I was able to restore normal flow with a heat gun. It's cheaper to run the water than to repair a ruptured pipe and the damage caused along with the inconvenience of being without water.
