Once you get 'em unfroze, if you can't insulate 'em, at least keep a faucet as far downstream in the system as you can running. Just a trickle is all. Moving water won't freeze as easy. Used to do that back home on the rare occasions it would get cold enough. We had to since I grew up in a mobile home.

i guess my biggest problem was that the winds were coming from the east which doesnt happen much but the wind are gonna change to the north which is good ciz its much less strain on my water main. but my pipe are un frozen but the bad day continues because my dryer just quit on us. i think its the motor cuz it doesnt smell like a belt cuz i remeber the smell from my moms belt on her dryer going out. when will it end forst my pipes freeze now my dryer quits on me whats next. sorry i had to vent.
