Pipes freezing


My heat went out tonight and I can't get anyone here until tomorrow morning. The temp is going down to zero. Do you think my pipes will freeze in one night?

Just to be safe, I would turn off the water at the main in the house and then drain the pressure off the water lines in the house at the lowest point on your water lines. Make sure you do both the hot and cold lines.
