possibly frozen fuel lines. How much gas is in your car?

fuel lines can freeze if there's less than 1/4 of a tank in the car. But if it won't start to turn over then I'd say your alternator or selonoid, but it's odd that it would just go like that.

here's an idea that could work and usually does when it's cold out. Try starting it in nuetral instead of park if the car is an auto tranny.

it should click more than once if you hold it in the start position.

then yeah you need a new selenoid. It's not a hard job, just do it yourself. Granted it is cold as hell out there
