It does sound like a fan (or related circuit) issue.
On my '05, I wired up indicator LEDs to know when the PCM is commanding either low speed or high speed fan operation, so that I can see the effects of when the fan is supposed to come on, and make sure it is on when it should be. I did this after my trip to the Brawl a few years ago and the car got a little hot while stopped in Ohio. When I got to the hotel and talked to Lee, we unplugged and replugged in the fan connector, and I didn't have any other issues that week.

I guess the point is, Jim, it could be as simple as a fan relay or fuse, or indeed a bad fan. You might also try carefully 'kick-starting' the fan by hand and see if it comes on when you have the a/c on and idling. I had a fan fail like that, intermittently, where it would run sometimes, but other times it would not start; of course the fan motor was the problem.

Hopefully it is something simple and you didn't hurt anything.
