The battery may be too weak to crank due to the cold. Make sure it has plenty of cold cranking amps CCA. I don't know what kind or what you paid for it but it may not have enough CCA when really cold. If it is a good battery is probably the starter or corroded connections on the body or engine for the hot/ground wires for the battery.
