No, I don't think you did any permanent damage. When I was gone on vacation not too long ago my heater died. I had set the thermostat back in the house to a lower temperature. The temp in the tank was in the low 60s. Took a week but everything came back to normal.

I think you will be OK. Last Summer my tank completely lost power a couple of times over night. No heat or circulation. Electrical storms kept tripping the GFCIs. I spread my equipment across an additional electrical outlet and haven't had problems since then. It took a couple of days for everything to start looking normal again.
