    Finally got the incubator back up to temp after adding my eggs and the power goes out for an hour and temp drops down to 91°Friday. Please tell me it wasn't long enough to cause problems.

    They will be perfectly fine. I've had 10 hour outages in the past and had no negative effects on my hatch rate.
