Almost sounds like the water separating fuel filter on the AD had water in it and froze, blocking the fuel system. In the future, it is a VERY wise practice to drain a small amount of fuel from the water separating fuel filter on the AD and ensure fuel NOT water comes out. If water does come out, continue draining until fuel comes out. I periodically do this to mine during fillups to make sure any water is drained from the filter.
