The temps went down to 10 degrees last night. Even though all my pipes are wrapped they still froze . I forgot to let the faucet drip. As I peeked out the window I saw a poor hummer sitting at this feeder. I bundled up and went out to retrieve the feeder and the poor thing was so weak it could barely fly away. I brought the feeder in and had an empty one so I made up a batch of sugar water and filled the feeder. (i keep lots of bottled water around)
Even thought I had wrapped this feeder it still froze.

They quickly flew to the warmer feeder. I poured warm water over the smaller frozen feeder but it really didn't help much.

To night I will bring them in as it will be just as cold .
AHHH Sunny warm Tucson, AZ.
