Ok boys, stupid car question....

It was nice and sunny this morning.... DH has the car battery charging in the driveway... the charger is on the ground.
While we were out there he said "I hope it doesn't rain now that this is all hooked up....."
Well, he's gone to bed, and its gonna rain.
I dont want to wake him up to ask this dumb dumb question..... should I unhook it? or just rest the charger under the hood of the car?
I really shoulda asked "and what if it DOES rain?!"
Thanks.

Are you comfortable with unhooking it? If so, better safe than sorry, and you did not have to wake up DH.

Unplug the charger first. then remove the clamps from the battery any way you want.
