Exclamation Help! Asap

Hello! I live in cold Massachusetts and the high here today was 11 degrees. I came home and the water will not work and that makes my furnace/heating not work as well. I checked the pipes and it doesn't seem like any are frozen (nothing has burst that I can see).
Could my outdoor well have frozen? These are supposed to be buried deep enough so they cannot.
The circuit breaker to the furnace keeps tripping, as if it's trying to pump water and is not able to.
I have no idea what to do. Any ideas or advice on what could be wrong?

Why is your lack of water not allowing the heat to work?
What temperature is your home currently at?
What type of heating system do you have? Radiators, baseboard etc??
Do you have a well pressure tank and if so what's the pressure gauge read?

You have no water at any faucet?

Is your boiler heating up? Whats the temp and pressure gauge say on the boiler?

You heating lines should not have froze if the heat was on...

Crawl space? Any exposed areas that the pipes are at with drafts/unprotected?

You may not want to wait too long and call a pro... They will use a thawing machine.. It will be costly though but not near as costly as burst pipes will be...

Pay now or pay later I always say....

Your well pump and heating system aren't on the same circuit breaker, are they? They shouldn't be, but ya never know.

I have no idea what to do
Start with the phone book... plumbers, well techs, heating techs... start calling.
