R56 Cooper S will not start

Yesterday my car wouldn't start in 24F degree weather. When I try to start it, it tries to start up normally, and I can hear it turning and cranking (barely), but it doesn't start.

After lifting the hood, I noticed that ice and snow got on the battery, literary connecting the + and the -. This is because I'm missing the battery cover. I removed the ice. I thought it was a weak battery, so I charged up the battery and tried to jump it, but it still wouldn't start.

Can someone help me!
Right now, I'm thinking it's either a fuse burned (from the ice between the + and -), the fuel line froze(from below freezing temperatue), or the fuel pump broke (from the cold?). I put regular (89) gas in the car, it's an automatic, 2007 R56 Cooper S with ~35K miles. It last started a couple days earlier, but it was just started and sat idle for about an hour while removing the snow. I checked with an ODB reader, no error codes.
I tried to check the fuse box inside the car, but those fuses are impossible to pull out! Am I supposed to use a special tool? The freezing weather doesn't help!
