Stiff pedals?

Ok, not normally this cold, but with it being -20 outside when I got in my car at work, I pushed in the clutch to start and it didn't come back out for like 4 seconds. Brake was extremely sluggish too.
I am used to getting in the car, starting and driving. :(

You may have to ignore the 'don't let it idle' rule tomorrow AM, with WC of -60 predicted.

All the fluids will be very thick!

Not AS worried about the wind chill, for the car, but yeah. brr
Fortunately car is in the garage overnight, I am even running a space heater out there before bedtime, to keep it up near freezing.
But I fully expect to at least let it idle for a while after work, driving without good pedal response is not good. accel worked fine tho

Ok, didn't drive yesterday, but this morning, from a ~+28 F garage to well below freezing outside the pedal stopped responding correctly after ca couple of miles, then returned to normal as the car heated up. :(
Gonna ask dealership about recalls.
