It sounds like the drive belt may be a little to loose. This has to be removed to get to the timing belt. I would either look at the drive belt for the power steering or get it back to the mechanic to have a look. At this point it's likely safe to drive it back there, but it should get attention right away. Especially in the colder weather, you don't want the belt to come off and have bigger problems.
