Truck wont turn/start

Prior to truck not starting:

Pulled a couple people out of the snow the night before.
Drove with about 800 pounds in the bed yesterday.

I dont think these two things would be the reason... probably because its negative 9000 degrees outside. (actually about 8 degrees)

I drove around quite a bit yesterday. Came home, shut the truck off, went inside for 10 minutes, came back out and tried to start the truck.

I turned the key and it turned over for about 2 seconds then wouldnt start. Now every time I turn the key in the ignition it wont make a sound. All lights come on and the battery is fine.

Any ideas?

Starter gone bad? Could it be anything else?

Thank you!

Check your cables and wires going to the starter and the battery, it could be a corroded cable that finally let go.
