Batteries are not as efficient in cold weather. If you bought a new battery off the shelf at a local auto parts store, it is NOT up to full charge. It is quite possible to light your lights and run the radio, but not have enough power to turn your starter. You NEED to either hook up a battery charger for several hours, or jump start your engine to run the alternator to charge up your battery.

Fuse blown bad starter relay bad neutral safety switch dirty batter terminals corrosion at the starter wires, just a few things for you to look at.

Don't go dropping money into it like crazy. I live in Ohio too. Start with taking your battery to auto zone and having them test it for a bad cell. If that's not the problem go back and have the starter tested. My bet is it's one of those two. When you say silent do you mean that it doesn't even crank? If it doesn't try to crank it's your battery or your starter. If it does try some starting fluid. If it starts you have a fuel problem. Fuel pump, injectors, fuel filter. Either way it sounds like a pretty easy fix. I'd put my money on the starter is bad. But auto zone or advanced can test them. Good luck!
