11 degrees no start

Temp dropped to 11 two nights ago and car would not start. Tried several times and it finally fired up yesterday but I noticed a STRONG fuel smell. Is this normal for an engine that has been turning over several times?

I had a fuel leak back last summer and fixed it, or so I thought. I am worried the brutal cold could have affected one of the lines.

Again, is it normal for there to be a strong fuel smell for a car that's sat and attempted to start 8-10 times over about a 28 hour period?
FYI 88 3.2 123k miles, runs fine otherwise.
