You can prevent your spark plugs from being wet by putting some of that Electrolytic grease(I think that's the name) on them.  You could have some water in the intake..  Just let it sit for a while and it should dry and be fine..

I would also check your air filter, make sure it didn't get soaked.

check your plug wires they are most likely the culprit. The car designed to be wet so watre should not affect it. change your plug wires.:)
