Urgent Question: is it ok leaving HPB in raining?

I am doing my patio project, I had ordered 20 cu yards HPB which will deliver on Wednesday, so far the weather forecast said a big rain coming on Sat and I definitely cannot finish the project at that time, so is it ok leave it on driveway or put on yard without any cover?

Thanks

Recommendation based on experience with HPB (i also used 20 tonnes) - put down a large tarp or two on the entire area where you will be having the stone delivered/dumped, makes it much easier to manage and clean up once you're done.

Other then that, no issues with it getting wet. HPB is clear (the fines/crush dust is washed away) 1/4 chip stone

Thanks jacquesstrap, very helpful, will buy the tarp today, and I don't have to call them to reschedule delivery with no worry about rain.

and another question, anybody have idea about how weight of HPB per cu yard? I had asked few company, most of them said 1.6 ton/cu yard, but dufferin aggregate (I ordered from here) said 1.2 ton/ cu yard, they all sell by weight and confused my calculation.
