Default honda civic dash lights going crazy...what kind of electrical problem?

I drove over some hard packed snow that hit the undercarriage, continued to drive it home with no problems...

The next morning I tried to start the car. I turned the key and the entire electrical system pulsed twice then it caught on the third time. Before moving the car out of park I noticed that the dash lights were all wonky.

fuel gauge blank

odometer was blank

mpg was blank

key light stayed on

abs light stayed on

maybe some other funky dash display issues also

I turned off the car, gave it 30 seconds or so and tried it again. When turning the key all the dash displays pulse on and off with the sound of the ignition turning over. It started again after a few pulses and this time I put it in reverse to get out of the tiny garage. I found that the power steering was also out.

Any ideas for me?

2003 Honda Civic Hybrid (IMA)
