Does the 6D have any sort of weather sealing?

I attended a parade with my 6D and 70-200 II. I'm in SoCal and we were going through a 3 yr drought, so I didn't expect to encounter any rain.
But it did rain - mostly light rain and I tried to keep my camera under my jacket most of the time. But enough water got on it to cause malfunction. The rear LCD screen began to flicker like crazy. The ISO, AV and TV settings were jumping around by themselves. I lost control over the camera but keep shooting, and still got some good shots.

I was sure my 6D would require a trip to Canon's service center. But after setting next to the heater for a couple of hours, operation returned to normal.

I'm gonna keep one of these in my camera bag...

When you see my camera gear you'll think I'm a pro.
When you see my photos you'll know that I'm not.

Going to have to echo the post above regarding the rain sleeve. For a measly $7 you protect your $1k+ camera quite a bit. I tried the shopping bag strategy while on a 7hr hike with my 1Ds3 in Ireland .. Didn't realize that after about an hour, what was originally supposed to protect it, had just turned into a bag full of water with a camera inside -? .. Needless to say I'm glad it was my 1D (that made it thru with no incidents) as I fear the 6D wouldn't have been as forgiving
