Living Smart: Is it OK to install a roof in the rain?

Dear Angie: Is it OK to install a new roof while it's raining? I'm having a new roof installed over 20-year old (Oriented Strand Board) sheathing. It started raining during the install. Good news is that they did a section at a time, so the OSB was exposed to fairly light rain/drizzle for about a half hour before peel and stick membrane was installed. Is that a problem?
