It's a pain and adds some time to the brew day but I do everything the same except drain and coil the hose back up in the garage when done so it doesn't freeze, oh and some ice melt on the drive so my kids and wife don't slip and sue me!

i half fill an extra large cooler the night before and let it sit out and freeze. When its time to chill i carry 10 more gallons of water and dump it in on the ice. I use a submersible pump to pump this through my IC.
