Unhappy Door hard to pull open..sub zero temps

I've had my drivers door stuck pretty good already twice now. Any suggestions as to a good solution? I've tried silicone spray and vaseline on the rubber seals in the past. But I wondered if there was something better.

put some spray silicon on a rag and wipe your door seals down and that will help keep your doors from freezing to the rubber.

I always rub some WD on the seals. Even when I lived in Idaho where it would get down to -15* I never had an issue.

If all else fails find a large blanket and drape it over the tops of the doors
