Default '94 Camry Trunk

Last nite i parked my car outside, outside for about 14 hrs, and it got
down to about 5 degrees. When i went this morning to try and open the
trunk the key turned, with force, but the trunk did not pop. I then tried
to pop the trunk from the lever by the driver's seat but when i pulled it
acted as if the trunk was already open.
So my trunk has yet to open even though the key hole in the back
remains horizontal, in the open position. Any ideas would be great. Thank
you!

Ice on the weatherstripping causing the trunk to stick closed? Try
parking the car in the sun, or (carefully) use a hair dryer to warm up
the edges of the trunk where the weatherstrip is.

Could be...I had this happen to my Camry once and jiggling the lock
(closing it with the key, then opening it rapidly) several times sprung
it loose.

The simple jiggling worked. Thank you! I feel slightly car-illiterate now
but thanks for letting me in on that idea.
