Like, is there a plug wire loose, or a bad spark plug? Another good possibility...a vacuum hose broke in the cold or came loose.
In cold weather, you're going to have a lot of lifter noise anyway, but it wouldn't make the engine shake like that.

The driver's side cam belt also turns the oil pump.
You may want to arm yourself with some other maintance parts if you are going to attemp this.
The list is:
belts? (idlers if ness.)
Please help me out here guys if I missed something.
One other thing I just thought I might mention. The lifters are pumped up by oil pressure which is held in check by relief valves in the cam cases. Since this came on rather suddenly maybe you have a stuck relief valve allowing the pressure in the lifter gallery to not come up to the proper pressure. They can be accessed by removing the cam covers and the "banjo" bolt found under the cover.
You can see these relief valves circled in this scan

No other symptoms - no loss of power, etc.
The temp. was lower than usual, about 12F.
