    Your pipes will not freeze. If it makes you feel better you can keep the COLD water turned on in say the kitchen sink at a very fast drip. This way you will know your pipes aren't frozen.

    I only turn my kitchen faucet on at night when it goes down to 15 at night. Last night it went down to minus 4F and I had the water on in the kitchen!
