There won't be any water coming out of the faucets.

You may also hear water running, if your pipes run in a crawl space beneath the house. Most of the pipes I have worked on involve an outside faucet that someone forgot to turn off, before the cold season. The water pressure may be reduced; a test... turn off all water faucets and go to your water meter, see if it is still moving this will indicate that you have a leak somewhere.

How do you thaw frozen pipes?

Depending on the location of the frozen pipes, you might erect a barrier around the pipes and use a space heater to warm the area. Stay in the area, watch to make sure you don't start a fire and that the pipes don't leak when they thaw. If the pipes are outside your house install some heat tape, it will prevent them from freezing again. If the pipes are outside, the best solution is to put them deeper into the ground (natural and good insulation).
