If you have a water pipe that freezes, you should turn the on tap that is nearest to the pipe to ensure the water has a place to get out when the pipe thaws out. This will relieve pressure and might prevent the pipe from bursting, and could prevent cracks from appearing.
If your toilet is clogged, and the plunger is not working, and your water level inside of the toilet appears low, you may be able to resolve the problem by pouring a bucket of warm water into the toilet from waist level or higher. Do this as often as necessary if the water level gets too low.
