2006 Acura rl won't start after rain storm

I was driving my car while it was pouring rain and I didn't go through any really big puddles. I went inside my house for 10 minutes to grab something and came back out and now it won't start. It cranks and all my lights and radio turn on but it won't start all the way up.

perhaps the battery died?
usually there is a little round colored sticker on the battery that tells the born date in Month/Year format.
look for the colorful circular sticker, i'm guessing it's gonna say it was born around 2014, as batteries usually last about 4-5 years

It can't be that. The sticker says 2018.

just ruling the battery out....
when you checked the sticker, did you happen to look at the cables connecting to the battery?
perhaps they are corroded?

I don't think so. I didn't see anything wrong with the cables.

Can you hear the fuel pump when you turn the car into On position (before you crank)?
