    One more thing. It’s going to get extremely cold tonight. Apparently may be into the teens. Would it be in my best interest to go out there and start the car and run it for over a half an hour?

    Probably not.
    Whatever additional charge that might put into the battery probably would be gone by morning.
    But it wouldn't hurt anything either.

    Your time probably would be better spent calling around to your friends to see if you can find a "jump pack" to borrow.
