    They are usually dry, however they can get submerged if it's been raining a lot recently and the water table is a bit high conversely they also get submerged if there's a leak either on yours or the company side of the meter.

    You should bale it out, takes some readings and ensure that you don't have a leak, especially on your side of the meter as it will be costing you a lot of money.

    Mines currently sitting in a bit of water and has been most (all?) of this year... it's been wet frequently enough! 
    I usually need to wipe muck off the glass to see the numbers (varifocals make that job a pita).  It has been dry and exposed in the past, though.
    I have no leak based on the monthly meter readings I take.
    Clay soil means it takes time to disappear, even though we're almost on the top of a slope.
