Question Windshield washer frozen

I changed to the -35F from the -20F fluid but by the time it got to about-5F, the front and rear already stopped working. I can hear the pump in both front and back running but no fluid and now even at -5F, no fluid. Ideally, I could put the car in a heated garage or we have a warm day but it wont be near +15 for a few more days. I can see the fluid in the reservoir and its very liquid. I assume the blue -20F was actually not good for what it was rated for and some was still left in the lines even though I did get the front to work for a while. Its also possible that the nozzles have frozen fluid in them and is the issue but I got the engine compartment nice and warm then went through a warm car wash twice and still no luck. I'm concerned the lines may freeze and break with the expansion as the temps have hit -29F. Anyone have experience with extreme cold and windshield washer issues? Thanks
