It has been -23 for quite a few days. Car was plugged in, but didn't drive it. When I got in the air bag light was flashing. Airbag for passenger side said off. Both status changed after I had derived a couple of blocks. Did not go far. When I came back out to start car, it started fine, but steering felt like it was no longer power steering. Very very hard to turn wheel. Was like this for about a minute, then all was fine. WHY????

Just a guess but at that temperature the power steering fluid has probably congealed and can't do its job. Once the car warms up a bit the fluid started flowing.

Or ice or fluid on the serpentine belt or under the hood. Yup -23 is pretty darned cold.

That is a real HEATWAVE. It was 60 here in southern Kansas today, but ice is on the way for the weekend.

Sustained low temps like that can really have a detrimental effect on vehicles, when my brother first moved to Fairbanks even with the cars plugged in he would go out every couple of hours and fire them up during the -40 part of the season until the garage was finished that summer.
