Hi Keith,
It might just be the NT5's, or perhaps their small diaphragm mics more 
generally, but I know many on the list love some of their large diaphragms for 
barrier-type stereo rigs in the field. Then again, I might have just been 
unlucky with my NT5s.
My NT5's didn't recover. After the initial event (popping and squealing sounds) 
they were both intermittent back in the studio. The failure can be subtle and 
intermittent, making it frustrating when you are trying to record.
I'm not an expert on this topic, but this is one reason folks spend the big 
bucks for RF mics like Sennheiser MKH series for their high-humidity tolerance. 
I know there are many discussions on this in the forums.
