I'd hit it with a hair dryer before you do anything.
I TOLD you your projects need to be covered! If nothing else, the nice ones!

I agree. Use a hair dryer, heat gun etc and try defrost the water inside. Just don't let things get too hot

I took it inside for a few min and it worked again i think it was just stuck from freezing together because no water came out and i do cover stuff but it just flies off last winter i used a kiddie pool to cover my ken bar and it worked great now that kiddie pool is gone
