It rained a lot about 8 days ago. It has been below freezing most nights since.

As long as you are getting at least 1"-2" of rainfall or snowfall at least once a month in the winter, you do not need to water. If you are getting less than that, then you can water about once a month or so. While plants do need water during the winter, their water needs are greatly reduced.
