My family and I are refinishing our deck. We live in area with wild weather so, even though it called for a week of sun, immediately after finishing sanding our deck (to a very beautiful underneath) it got drenched from rain. It took 5 people 3 days of sanding to finish it. Please, please don't tell me we have to do it again. I have read many things about wood pores and finish that won't stick.

Is this rain going to affect anything? Or can we let it dry for a day or so and proceed with staining?

Get Cabot Stain, it is used on wet/dry decks and is beautiful. Sold at Lowes.
