Gently thump the starter and solenoid with a piece of wood. At that temperature the slightest moisture can make things lock up tight. You can also use a hair dryer to warm it without doing damage. Do not use a propane torch....too hot....ruins plastics, etc. Also, check battery terminals for looseness.
