A winter wonderland in your basement is not something you want to wake to after a frigid night. First, shut off the water. Move any water-logged or iced-over items to a warmer and drier location and start the process of drying them out. Remove as much water as you can with a sump pump or wet-dry vacuum, and place fans and a dehumidifier in the area. Cut out the section of pipe that has burst and add a replacement section. Now work on prevention. Insulate your pipes with pipe wrap and add insulation to the walls and cavities near the pipes.
