98 Chevy 1500

So it rained a lot the other day and I went to my car the next morning and my heater blower no longer works. I should add that the weather dropped below the freezing point the next day so maybe that matters. Anyways I'm wondering if this could be anyway connected, or if it's just coincidence. I can smell a little antifreeze and what smells like a burning motor so I assume that's what I'm going to have to replace. Your thoughts.

Welcome to the forums! Smelling burning motor is one thing (replace motor), but smelling antifreeze indicates either your heater core is leaking or you have hose leaks which need to be repaired. Wx dropping below freezing generally won't hurt things like the motor. Extreme cold will give problems on bearings, etc.
