Default Frozen wax

Waxed religiously the night before, with OBall "cool" Cool = 28F to 21F (-2C to -6C) scraped, brushed. Sunday was VERY cold in Kirkwood, air temp was 14 it never got above 21. The board would stick to the snow for the first runs, it was comic, I would point the board down and it would proceed slowly squeaking over the snow, in slo-mo. After about 5 runs it go much better. Never happened before. What happened? The wax froze and he ice crystals gripped on the snow?
