Watermelon question

Watermelon question

I had a beautiful, tiny watermelon growing a few days ago. Then, we had 2 days of almost non-stop rain. The skies have finally cleared and I went outside to see that a good 1/3 of my watermelon vine was dead and that perfect baby watermelon was a brown smoosh. What happened? Was it all of the rain? Or was it something else?
