You must have been running straight water and there was a hard freeze. The big thing to find out is if you have a cracked block from the freezing. Freeze plugs are dirt cheap, but the engine may have to be removed to gain accessibility. It sounds like the radiator is toast. Probably worth fixing if the block is OK. Otherwise you need a new engine. Wouldn't hazard a guess on cost without more information. Good luck.
