This morning when I drove to work it was -7 degrees and it made my blinkers go haywire. Sometimes they would do nothing at all, sometimes I would hear them click fast with no dash light and sometimes they would work fine. This is on both sides. By the time I got to work and everything was warmed up everything was working fine so I couldn’t check to see how the actual lights were responding during this strange behavior. I’m concerned because it looks like we’re going to be in a deep freeze for a while and in the -20s next week so this will probably crop up again. Any ideas what the problem could be?

Extreme cold (and heat) can effect electrical contacts. The extreme cold might have effected a part that is worn and about to go bad. I wouldn't worry about it at this time, but keep an eye out for it. Intermittent electrical issues are very hard to trace down anyway.
