You were fortunate that it didn't break.  In the winter of 1950 or '51 - 
can't remember which - the temperature in Pensacola, Florida dropped to 12 
degrees.  All the fixtures in my rented apartment froze - the faucets were sitting 
about an inch out from the attachment on little cylinders of ice.  The plumbing 
in the kitchen ran under the floor from the sink to the water heater on the 
other side of the room.  Not only did the water heater freeze and crack, the 
pipes under the floor split so that when it thawed the entire floor was flooded.  
What a mess!  At least my landlord, who was a retired pipefitter, took care 
of it all pretty quickly.
