I would slightly open a couple taps. Make sur
It’s minus 27 with the windchill in Oklahoma. Heat is great. I sent in a “ticket” with the city my water ain’t working. I have never been without water before. Is there anything I can/need to do? House is 3 weeks old
Thanks fellas.
Leave a tap open, if it was freezing up having a tap open could help if its not too late.

I always leave a faucet on running slowly when expecting sub zero temps for extended periods. Sorry that won't help you now. Be safe.

I was going to do that but was scared something would happen and I’d come home to a flooded house

Sorry for the circumstances. You have to tell us more than the water isnt coming on. Yes, crack all the valves to relieve pressure.
I came home today, when to turn on the water and it came out for 10 seconds then slowly slowed down to nothing. Now no water

You should be fine. You could check where your waterline comes in and see how cold the line is there. My next door neighbor's water line froze a couple winters ago. I think it cost him $600 to have a guy unfreeze it. Basically they run electricity from the water shut off out side to where the pipe enters the house. The electricity heats up the pipe and thaws it.

Probably not long enough. Are you getting municipal water? From a well it is likely frozen, but in a neighborhood it's unlikely.
City water, I don’t know any neighbors so no idea if they have water. I don’t care about being without water a few days, I just don’t want some fucking big bill
