Orange blinking power light on Latitude D820 laptop

\015 I have a Dell Latitude D820. Two days ago we had an ice-storm and a subsequent blackout (New Hampshire, it was reasonably notable apparently), we lost power, my dorm lost heat as well (not most of the dorms, of course. grr grr grrr). At some point in the afternoon of evening, my computer died and shut off (it'd been in stand-by) and wouldn't turn on again - occasionally after pounding hte power button the bios would start to boot but it would turn back off before it even tried to get to the hard drive.\015\012\015\012Now I have heat and power, though, and the same thing was happening - until I plugged in the AC cord. When it finally booted, the battery light was blinking rapidly orange, and only stopped when I pulled the battery. Looking at the power meter shows that it doesn't think there even is a battery in it.\015\012\015\012Did I completely freeze my battery? If I click the button the back of the battery it says it's around 80% filled, and the problem's obviously not the computer. Is there anything I should try to get it working again?\015
