you are going to get 100 people telling you that I am of my nut here, but here is what you do
Clean as much out as possible. use compressed air if you have it. If not, blow on it, don't worry over being perfect. Put the engine back together, and run it. The trace amount of moisture left, will boil off in no time.
Think about the amount of condensation that occurs within an engine, during periods of extreme cold weather operation. every time it cools, you are introducing an amount of condensation to the crankcase. It simply evaporates and goes out through the CCV.
Quick disclaimer. I work in the snow and cold, anywhere from 6 - 8 months of the year. I see snow get into just about everything. You do what is possible to clean it out, and when you can't make it any cleaner.... you run it. the only place we get super paranoid, is fuel systems, for obvious reasons.
