Default Stumbles - Weird occurence, thoughts??

I drove to work today, lots of dry loose gravel, a thunderstorm occurred when my car was parked, humidity remained around 95%, I go out to start the car, it just barely sounded like it fired up, but sounded "dry" and died right away, did it 3 times, fourth time the car stumbled to idle at 500 rpm, and then continued to run and ran buttery smooth with full power 110kph @ 2350 rpm on the highway, but it definitely lacked power for the first minute or so after starting.

Never happened before, I'm assuming fuel issue or ignition issue humidity specific?? We'll see how she starts tomorrow in the cool garage in the morning, car repeatedly starts fine now. I hope its not my AFM/MAF on it's way out.

Year, miles on car to begin with. Any error codes or warning lights?

Car is a 91 UCF10, 220, 000 kms with new tbelt water pump recently done and new caps/rotors, admittedly old wires/plugs and old air filter that I will check momentarily, no codes other than code lean for my failed o2 sensor which I've neglected for months.
