Some locations exceeded 45C/113F (outside) and diurnal cooling wasn't much
better according to many sources. I didn't see what the system temps were
but with limited cooling, were likely well into the ouch range for chips.
As we know, computers don't like that and show their displeasure by
quitting, forever. They also trash hard drives on their way out. The
larger issue was that the power grid was shut down for protection, which
would limit shack/vault ability to cool too (no a/c on battery).

How hot did it get down there? Some of my repeater sites have reached 120F
inside during the summer months, but I've designed the systems to handle it.
What was the ambient temp near the node equipment?
