    In theory, could not a spider web absorb early morning moisture (dew) and then conduct electricity, so as to cause a short? Lol...was just looking at the kill switch on my TW and there is some spider web in there. Just a thought. I could test this of course but am far too lazy, for now at least. Maybe one day I will.

    I did electronics work for 12 years. I'm not gonna say it's not possible, just not likely, sounds like a good mythbusters episode though.
