In regards to Illini Rookie I think the thing it would have the most impact on is hop utilization.  A good rolling has many benefits but I believe the most noticeable would be hop bitterness and potentially some clarity.  If you are going for kettle carmelization that would impact it as well.

Then I lucked out! I was brewing a Kolsch. I didn't want a whole lot of hop bitterness, and no carmelization would be great!

Glad I wasn't brewing something else. The problem is I told someone we would brew this weekend and it is supposed to be 28F.  :o I was also told I am no longer allowed to brew on the stove. Might be a cold brew day.

I think that by adding to the boil and making sure the boil is about the right time, you will be fine. I have run out of propane mid-boil and had to go buy propane to finish the boil. I didn't notice anything out of hand. I actually think you might get slightly more hop bitterness because isomerization supposedly happens at temps over 170. I still wouldn't worry too much about it.

Regarding the cold brewday, the sliding glass door is your friend. You can watch the boil and make sure everything is going properly from inside the heat.

Like everybody already said, it doesn't matter too much. When I do my all-grain batches, I care very little about anything other than the amount of fermentables I'm getting out of the grist. I also brew on a gas stove in my tiny apartment and my 5.5-6 gallon wort takes about 30-40-ish minutes to reach a hot break and I could care less. You shouldn't either!! :-) RDWHAHB!
