Gather your web developers in the data center and tell them they will have to begin coding for IE4. Things should warm up them. :)

Hope there's no damage but you know, running the air conditioners might help. At least the air continues to flow.

Our backup data center, where I work out of, is cold. It's 62 in the main office. Apparently in the plenum above the drop ceiling it must be colder because, judging by the fact that our faucets and stuff aren't working, I suspect our pipes are frozen.
Our operator can remember a time before I started (over 27 years ago) when a main froze and broke and she waded through the water to turn off the 360.
About a week or two ago I found a ceiling tile in the machine room with a screen on it and a fan. I turned it on because it seemed rather silly to me to be running air conditioners to cool down the machine room in sub zero weather. Now it seems that even wasn't enough heat to help the plenum.
We've opened up the machine room doors and put a fan in them to help heat the office space. Drives the operator nuts - she hates the noise.
On the positive side, the air conditioners haven't had to kick on all day.
Thinking about working in the machine room, it's nice and toasty in there still.
Could be worse - the PC tech's office is by the loading dock. He's wearing a hunting coat.
Since there's no water - good thing I didn't go eat at the local greasy spoon for lunch today.
