Is the battery dead? If the sun doesn't warm it up, the best thing to do is call AAA- or just abandon it like all the other cars in that horrible weather-

Believe it or not, pounding on your door will loosen the ice that has formed around your lock when you parked your warm car in the outside car park. Or I should say it might work. Beat around the door seals with you hammer fist. Make a fist and hit do not punch. It might also help if you stick the key in the key hole and try opening manually.
