2001 Ford Windstar rear brakes locked up

The rear brakes in my 2001 Windstar are acting strange. I live in Alaska and it's about 30 +F. This morning van felt like the rear brakes were engaged. Brake light on at all times. Car barely moves and when it does strange noise comes from the rear tires. It's not extremely cold right now, so I don't know what could have caused this. Farely new vehicle that has been treated well.

I don't know if you recently had some rain or flooding but it sounds like the parking brake cables got some water in them and then froze. Can you get it inside a garage or something to thaw it out?
