Default Emergency caulk help!

Caulked about 30 windows, unexpected rain fall hit about an hour after all was caulked. Caulk is very gooey sticky... Not hardened! What do I do? Now it's expected to rain all week... Am I screwed?

Yes. It will eventually dry once the water/solvent has a change to evaporate and coalescence takes place.

We paint exterior in Seattle, so rain is always 2 hours away. I had this issue a few years ago. Caulking never dried....called the number on the tube. They said that batch had been recalled and should not have been sold to you. Ended up removing it ALL

If I was in a rain prone area I'd just use a quick dry or paintable 2part.
