Is this normal??

okay guys so i havent driven my truck in about a week and half but like 2 nights outta the week and half a let the truck run for about a half hour. I went to start it this morning for the first time in about 3 days and it would sound like it wold fire then not. so i tried it again it sounded like it was going to fire right up then didnt. the n got in held the pedal down a little and it fired up stayed running and went into high idle. I drive it for about 2 hours and it drove great and strted fine throughout the day. The last week few days its been about 7 to 10 degrees at night and 20 degrees during the day. Truck has not been plugged in at all. So is this normal? Iv only had the truck for about a year so ican't rally say iv had this happen.

to my knowledge i'd say it's normal for the temps you're talkin about and not drivin the truck on a daily basis
