How's your battery voltage? If it's good and it won't turn over (no rotation) then hydrolock is likely. Sorry.

Yup, I don't think this car likes the Okanagan. Last year same time threw a rod thru the side of the block.

I don't think there is water involved. If anything I would guess it to be fuel. If water was in the system would the oil not be milky?
