2002 Zetec Engine Ticking/ Misfiring?

Hi everyone,
I searched the forums and couldn't find anything like this. A couple days ago we got hammered with snow (2' ish), and I had to move my car to a different parking spot on campus to avoid getting a ticket. In doing so, the snow managed to get into my engine bay, like way up onto the valve cover, spark plug wires, coil pack, you get the idea. Ever since then, it hasn't run right, it sounds like its misfiring and has a very mild tick at idle. I checked the oil, I have enough, so now my thinking is I got the coil pack wet, and it shorted a wire or something, so it's not sending spark? I really need to get this taken care of so any information or insight would be very appreciated.

1995 Jetta GLX: VR6, Intake, Exhaust, Lowered, 5-speed, you get the idea.
