Drying wet lumber

I'm building a shed and my lumber was rained on for an hour or a little more. I have 2x4, 2x6, and OSB material stacked up right now.

What do I need to do to get it dry?

How long should I wait before resuming work with the wood?

I agree - you can get to work.

You don't need to do anything. Keep working. When houses are being framed they get rained on all the time. There's no way to stop it from getting wet. It can rain/snow for two days straight. After that, you come back and keep framing.
