Folks did that each and every time there was a call for snow up in New England. Always. Of course, in Mass. they were always sure to add some booze, snacks with the bread and milk, as well. But this isn't something that only occurs in the South. My mother would always panic and send my dad to the store and when I grew up, I did the same. Well, minus the booze for my parents and I don't really drink, either.

But when you get that country home in Tennessee you have to think a head for these situations pantry full of dried or canned food and a gas / alcohol stove and sleeping bags. If you don't have a wood stove or fire place.

Yeah pretty much!

BTW, just got into the hotel... BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR it's a tad chilly out. All the doors on the rental car were frozen shut so they had to upgrade me... bummer right? Been about 3 years since we've been in <20 degrees, NEAT! As long as it doesn't last for weeks/months on end we're all good.

Hmmm I will trade your frozen doors for my frozen water pipes. Ugh no heating tape to be found anywhere. Oh well warmer weather on the way

An educated guess is at the feeder line right were the main water pipes get under the crawlway of the house. ater that the pipes are uner insulation. I checked last night with a flashlight and what I can see, is no burst pipes or anything like that. So will wait till it warms up and then find insulation for the bare part of the pipe between the ground and insulation. I am open to suggestions, for I am only guessing Thanks in advance for any advise.....

Doubt you will notice any busted pipe till the water flows (could be a small split). Could be froze under the insulation also...

Since you mentioned heat tracing, I presume you have copper pipes....if PVC - NOT too much heat !!!!!

Can you put a space heater/heat lamp there (without damage to anything), heat gun, heating pad wrapped with a towel...
