Hvac motor dying?

Well in the northeast lately it has not only been cold, but freezing. Plus snow. When I get it my car I do not have the heat to come on automatically... I pull out the garage and turn it on the lowest setting... What I hear doesn't sound great.

Sounds like rough turning gears or a slipping belt coming from behind the glovebox area. I can turn it off and back on and sometimes fixes, sometimes not. Doesn't really get much louder when cranking the fan on high. Usually always goes away.

Thoughts on what this is? didn't do this last year.
