Movie "Titanic" comes to mind.You want freezing. Middle of winter, -30°F out, my parents rental was empty. A water line froze and broke. My brothers turned the water off outside the house. The floor drain in the basement was plugged. The water level was holding at 4' deep and flowing out the riser for the washing machine drain. It was 20' from the stairs to the drain. I ended wading through waste deep water that was probably 40°F to get to the drain. I snapped the drain off and yes, all the guys know what felt like they froze off.
