It sounds to me like your block/head may of froze , this could of cracked the head , look close and see if you see any cracks around the plugs where you found antifreeze

What an engine freezes and you start it the water in the engine heats up but cannot circulate so it over heats even at -30

Did you check your coolant with a gauge to see how low of a temp it was safe to ?
