Radio stopped working after big storm...now suddently working!

All, FYI in case this happens to you, but we had some huge storms in the Austin area over the last week and my radio suddenly stopped working (no power....no clock). I replaced the fuses (7 and 31) and still nothing. Well, I got in the truck today and suddently it works again. When I replaced the fuses I noticed there was literally standing water (1/2"?) in the side compartment wall where the wiring is (passenger floor on the right), so given this, I'm 90% sure the wiring just got wet and temporarily shorted, and now has dried out. It's pretty weak to me that so much water could have gotten inside the truck's walls, but it happened...
