i have 3 outlets on the outside of my garage, that mysteriously quit working. i checked the circuit breaker, it was not tripped, but i shut if off/on several times, still no power--i even tried replacing the CB. One outlet possibly got wet from my sprinklers this morning--could that have caused my problem??

Look for a GFCI receptacle in that circuit and reset it if it was tripped.

Most likely the GFCI is in one of those outside receptacles oro in the garage.

But it can be most anyplace. For example the basement or even crawlspace.

And if this is an older home this it may have been wired off of a GFCI in a bathroom.

And I have heard of them being in attics and closets.
