foundation pour

I'm adding 500 sqft to our house and it will be built on pier/beam. I'm in Northern California on clay and once it starts raining in late Oct the ground stays water logged and sloppy. I bid the job out to 2 different contractors, one said no issue to pour the foundation and piers if the ground is wet, the other said he'd prefer to either get it poured right now or wait till next spring.

Anyone with supporting of differing opinions?

Thanks, Tony

I kept hoping that concretemasonry or pecos would jump in but here is my 2cts worth, dry is better, it can be done wet but dry is much better.
