2010 SEL Won't Start

I don't know much about cars, but here goes...while I wait for the roadside service to arrive.

2010 Focus SEL, 46k miles, have been consistent every 5k miles for oil change, etc. Afraid I don't know what kind of engine I have. Drove it this morning, no problem. Now:

* Won't turn over.
* Can't shift out of park.
* No electricity at all.
* Key fob doesn't work.
* Click-click-clicking sound, constantly, from inside base of steering wheel.
* Headlights dimly on.
* Dashboard/steering wheel lights dimly flashing.
* Tried to jump it, nothing.

Bad battery and/or connections or alternator.
I was a Shade Tree Mechanic, but had to cut down the Shade Tree to make room for the garage. Does this make me a Mechanic now?

sounds like dead battery to me. Did you forget your lights on?
