GBW saves my bacon!

This morning while I was working away at the computer, my wife walked by the grow room, and yelled down the hall that something was making a racket in there...

The noise was coming from my 4x4 tent, so it had to be the inline fan...  I unzipped the tent, expecting to hear the noise from the top of the tent, but no, it was coming from lower down...  The only other thing in there was the light, could it make a squealing noise? I didn't think so, but if it could, then it sounded like it would explode... I rushed and unplugged the light, but the noise persisted... so I unplugged the fan, and still, the noise persisted...  That's when I noticed the little black oscillating fan clamped to the pole about a foot off the ground...  Yep, it was the cheap circulating fan...   gave it a smack, and it's fine...

Fast forward to tonight, ten minutes ago...  My phone had been shut off and charging since dinner time, and as soon as I turned it on, it went nuts with all these notifications from the system telling me the temp was climbing in the flower tent...

WTH? How could that happen, the lights went out 3 hours ago, so even if the fan wasn't working, it shouldn't get hotter...  I looked down at the duct I am using as an air intake for the tent, and can see faint light coming though... What? The lights were supposed to go out 3 hours ago?

When I plugged the fan and light back in this morning, I plugged the fan into the timer, and the light into the extension cord.  The FAN shut off 3 hours ago, the 400W light, or should I call it heater, was going full blast...

It would have REALLY sucked to wake up tomorrow morning, look in the tent, and find all the plants baked and dead....

WHEW!!
