Since you live in Minnesota, I'll assume that it gets way colder than I'll ever know about here in Georgia. I'll make some general assumptions...
Try a thinner oil for the winter time. Your oil might be too thick and sludge-like in the morning for the engine to even cooperate. Also, even though it couldn't be temp-related, check the starter motor. Who knows what lurks there. It might be the problem.
But I do have one question. If it is not starting, does that mean you are pushing it into the shop?
