White smoke coming from engine

Today in the morning while waiting in line to enter a parking lot, I noticed white smoke coming from the engine bay. Yesterday, there was very heavy rain and wind, and some low water crossings, so maybe something got water damage? I'm not sure what it is but I'll have to check it out.

EDIT: I figure it's just water that was left in the engine bay and somehow started steaming up.

Glad it was just a false alarm. That is definitely a common thing when winds and rains are at a certain level. A bit of steam cleaning for the inside

I'm also glad that it sounds like it's not a major issue happening with your car there but I would run a check on the car just in case. You don't want to go out in that car if it is anything other than steam. Better to be safe rather than sorry if you ask me.
