Question Bi-xeon headlight went out after heavy rain

This last Sunday I was out in heavy rain. After gettting home, I noticed the passenger side headlight was out. It was working fine the previous night (no rain). Now (Tuesday morning) it is working again. I'm guessing water managed to short something out and now that the car has dried out it is working again. I wasn't driving through deep water. There were some 1 inch deep puddles hear and there but nothing major. This has never happed on previous rains. I made an appointment with the dealer for this Saturday. Do you think they will take the time to look into the problem or just blow it off because it is working now? I hate to have this happen with every heavy rain.
