D7000 in wet conditions

I am taking a trip up the north eastern coast and then up into Canada. Im a little concerned about the weather and my camera. The D7000 is advertised as being weather sealed, but should I really trust it? (I could see maybe fog or light mist of rain) How temperamental are cameras in general (even non weather sealed)? It would upset me to ruin a $1200 camera over a little rain. I was actually thinking of purchasing a D3100 or 5100 to use on the days when the weather was poor. So if something did occur i would only be $500. Am I over thinking this? And I do intend upon purchsing a rain cover, still shopping to find the right one.

Thanks
