I would bring it up into the warmth and light of your house, but I just looked at your outdoor temperatures and it's still getting near freezing at night. Fuchsia is tropical and won't tolerate temperatures below 50 degrees F (10 C).

Keep it inside till night time temps are consistently above 50 degrees F. You can prune it back by 1/2 and keep it watered in a filtered light area.
