Well I got the saw a week ago, and have used it every day since. Just heard from Oregon Rep and he said that they are now approving it's use in the rain. However, I don't think I'd likely be comfortable using it in the rain myself, as my disabilities make me a bit clumsy and I'd be more likely to slip and fall or somehting like that.
Yesterday the rain stopped in the afternoon and I went through 2 battery charges..cutting just under a cord of wood. They say we might have a break in the rain this afgternoon again, so if we do I'll try to cut some more today. Was just outside attempting to walk around the garden and got dumped on and had to come back in, so that wasn't successful...but we need the rain.
