I would definitely test her ketones again just for peace of mind if you can. She is right at the time in her pregnancy when toxemia can become a concern and the added stress of cold/snow can bring it on if they are on the edge. Even if it's something else causing her to lose her appetite, it's possible her lack of intake could put her into ketosis. I'm glad you brought her into the barn. Is her temperature normal?

If it were me I'd check for rumen sounds and then probably start trying to get caloric drenches into her to bolster her strength - dyne or power punch, maybe, or corn oil and molasses.
