Angry Can't reach hood release to open hood

So, I can no longer open the hood of my car. It is incredibly tightly on, much more so than when I opened it without a problem just a few days ago.

Then there was a large snowstorm(no idea if that is the cause or not) and here I am several days later trying to open it, and it will not budge, at all. I can barely even get the tips of my fingers under the rim.

Any ideas?

Re: Can't reach hood release to open hood

Can it be frozen? Maybe you can try after driving and the heat of the engine will melt any ice.
