When it's that cold, a piston engine should be warmed prior to a start attempt. In fact, it may not start, either due to not turning, or more likely the fuel won't vaporize.

Let's not forget the snowblowers, plougs, de-icing trucks, warm coats, boots and popsicle rampers you need.

A friend of mine flys King-Airs out of a private airport. To clear the snow from the runway, his company has a jet engine mounted on a trailer. They tow it behind a pick-up truck and aim the exhaust at the runway, clearing it with little effort and lots of kerosene.
