Default Repitch for bottle priming?

I brewed a stout a few months ago while it was still a nice temperature out and fermentation went great. My bottle filler broke and I waited a while to replace it. In the meantime the temp down in my basement has gone down considerably. I know this is fine for aging and all. I was just wondering if the yeast are going to make a comeback for my priming or if I should just repitch a little.

Unless you freeze the yeast and rupture it's cells, a yeast won't die if it gets too cold, it just goes dormant. The when it warms up the little buggers wake back up.

I thought so. I wasn't sure just how cold they could get.
