Lately my doors have been frozen shut, I think it might be the cold.

Anyone have some ideas to help prevent this from happening?

Try spraying wd-40 on a rag then wipe down the rubber gasket on the door, spray on some on the striker. If that doesn't help, try some furniture polish. I heard that works too
