For future reference, the next time you spray your engine off, do so after it is completely warmed up and while its still running. The heat prevents pooling and turns the water into steam before it can cause any problem; it also prevents any damage that might otherwise occur from putting cold water onto a hot engine. I know a lot of people will tell you not to spray it at all, which is good advice on an old engine with worm seals and connections, but I've sprayed the engines of both of my BMWs like that and several other cars with no problem.
