There will also be times where the house is winterized, so the plumbing can't be inspected. I go ahead and inspect what I can, and go back and finish at a later date. And , yes, I do charge to go back and finish up. Sometimes a buyer will suggest rescheduling the inspection, but as Gerry said, there is an obligation to start the process in a timely manner. I did an insp. just last week with no power due to a storm.
Usually when it is raining a during the inspection, the buyer will make a comment that they couldn't have picked a better day to inspect the house. You may see things like roof leaks or water in a panel box that would be difficult to detect on a dry day.
Just get some good rain gear and warm boots and do your best. I think we already discussed the pros and cons of Gore-Tex while back( my personal choice for keeping dry).
