fire and ice

So, this morning I had to use my defroster.
I've used only AC all summer, but I turned it
to hot this morning.

The driver side now only blows ice.
The passenger side only blows fire.

I turned the knobs multiple times (have dial dual
climate control), nothing.

I have to drive 1100 miles this weekend. My little tribe
will be screaming the whole way if I can't get the AC working.

Is there something I can do manually, to get both sides blowing
cold again?

I don't really have time or money to replace anything before the trip.

Also, when I do have time and money, what needs to be replaced?
