Left her in the weather, any hope?

You've got to dry it out completely for it not to short and fry the electronics. If it's warm and dry outside, leave it in a sunny spot for a day or two. Be sure to bring it in at night to keep the few off. You cool also try a warm oven - 150 or so -  or a ziploc bag full of rice (I've had varying degrees of success with those methods for drying out wet electronics.)

I recently dumped my Makita 18V 4AH battery along with my Makita power source in a bucket of water while working at my cousins house in Conecticut. 

While I drove home back to Long Island I would take turns holding them out the window while driving to dry them out. (Holding them tight of course) 

Seemed to work well on drying them out, having had any issues with either of them.
