I don't miss it, and I pity Matt tomorrow morning.
I did the same thing, in the same place. Only probably much further south, so it wasn't quite that cold. But, I was the only one who knew how to light and refuel the heater...

Waegwan (I think that'* how it'* spelled), north of Taegu. Camp Carroll to be exact. But, being MPs, we travelled all over. Never made it up to the Z, though, dangit....

-27C eh? That doesnt factor in 75km/h wind gusts and blowing snow. she was around 42 below when I went to bed last night, plugged in, the Alero did not want to start.

Does your heater keep the battery warm too? If not, it may have frozen too. Try turning on the headlights for about 10 minutes, the current drain will help thaw the battery.

OMG.... That takes me back to my Days In colorado Bud... we had a blizzard then all of the sudden we had a couple of days with temps as low as -60 .... 99% of the people that day had cars that were DOA... Funny tho, Our truck with the winter package( HD Battery, HD Starter bla bla bla ) Did start after a good bit of fighting... Good thing too as we had to go to the airport to pick Dad up that nite... It was the first and last time I saw it that cold there..

Brrrrrrrrrr..... Cold
