Sounds like low coolant or a thermostat issue.

I was going to say frozen lines, but then I finished your reading your post. I guess it was low fluid! The question is, did the rad freeze due to wrong coolant mix or just a rad failure? It might be worth looking into for the repair bill. I would hate to think it got the standard coolant for smaller engines, then topped up with water or they forgot the water already stuck in the block for the calculation. At -30 it would freeze.
