most of the garden was lost last night....I check and record temps
in the enclosures every night...usually the Takil,Geminisectus etc
run 34F/56F like clockwork....I happened to glance over at the
thermometer and it was 16F,probably not enough to eliminate
them but when I checked the low temp it read -4F.
No recovery from that...it was -6F last night.....if it happened
any other time I could open it and put in a new thermocube
etc....but not at -4F.
I have been stuck here anyway because of this garden...
so now it will be time for a change.
Most likely the culprit is water melting into the tiny holes
on top and either hitting the T-cube directly of just shorting it
