Default Emergency Brake Issue

So I got up the other morning and started the truck(-5). After letting it run for about 10 15 mins I released ebrake and started to reverse.
Instantly I heard a noise that at first I thought was my tires frozen to the ground.
On way to work it felt like truck was working really hard to hit 120km.
When I tried to put brake on again I realized that I could only depress it one click and it was solid as a rock.
Not sure what happened but hoping someone may have some idea...

sounds like some moisture in the brake cables and it's frozen. release the e-brake and tap the back side of the drums and it should release. just wouldn't set the e-brake again until it warms up.
