F350 will not start

I have a 79 F350 4x4 with a 400 C6 that will not start. The other day I started the truck up to plow the driveway and it started no problem and ran good as usual. I was just about done plowing when the truck all the sudden dyed on me when I pushed up a pile of snow. I went to go start the truck and it was completely dead, no clicking or any noise at all. The truck is still getting power because the radio and the fan still work. I am at a loss of where to start looking. Anyone have any ideas?
Thank you - Jeff

Start by checking powered connections to the ignition system. Something may have bumped off while pushing snow.

2x... battery connections and solenoid are the usual suspects.

I got it figured out. When I shifted the truck into park, the linkage did not fully go into park which would not allow the truck to turnover. I had to adjust the shift linkage slightly which was no big deal.
