My hot water pipe is frozen . . .

somewhere. It's just the hot side. I have cold water flowing with no problem. I've been running the furnace to try and keep things warm. According to the wireless temp gauge I have in the basement area it was 50 in there this morning. The water in the hot water tank is not frozen, I cracked the relief valve and had water coming out. I have no hot water at any faucet, anyone know where I should start?

Check the bypass valve first. Then check that the outside shower is shut off.

If there is hot water in the tank then opening the relief valve on the heater should result in hot water coming out. Try not to burn yourself.

I would guess that somewhere between the water heater and your first faucet you have a very cold area either from lack of air flow, insulation or just plain to close to the outside wall.

This is where a heat gun comes in handy.

When mine froze it was in the cubby hole behind the water hook up. I had to remove the back wall to expose the pipes put a heater in there and in about five minutes I had hot water.
