White smoke under hard acceleration

Hey guys, I am not really sure if its a problem yet(today is the first time its happened) but I figured I would ask anyway. I know you can build condensation inside the CAC system when its been raining and really humid (I am in Minnesota and well yah...) so I kinda figure that's what caused it. Other than coolant leaking, is there anything else I should look for? And how much white smoke should I expect from this, I may or may not have blinded 3 lanes getting on the freeway this morning. I lost power for a sec and let up on the throttle then it was back to normal. When I left work I saw a bit of a haze getting on the freeway again but never anything that would worry me.

I did drive about 5 miles before I had to get on the freeway. From what I have found this is a standard case of water building up in the CAC, but I am new to the Diesel world and wanted to find out from you guys.

I am bringing her in to have fluids and filters changed tomorrow. So she should get a good looking over.

BTW its a stock 08 f350 with 100k miles (will soon have EGR/DPF delete)
