Glad to hear you got it going.
Weird stuff can happen once it gets that cold. I've never seen that particular problem, but I've had stuff happen like doors not latching shut, being super-hard to shift gears, or having almost no suspension. Metal and plastic contract, rubber turns into concrete, and things get brittle.
Maybe keep a hairdryer and a long extension cord handy to gently heat up the steering column, in case it happens again. A cheap Walmart type hairdryer is your pal for a lot of these types of problems.
Failing that, a big canvas tarp and a Herman Nelson.
If Princess Auto were a real girl, I'd ask her to marry me.
