On my last day in Rouen I drove out to Croisset. Normandy rain was falling, soft and dense.

Great snippet.. Soft and dense is the perfect description for a pouring rain. Thanks for your theme suggestion, I hope it gets selected in the random selection next week. I think it will be a cool theme as well...

I'm so glad to hear your surgery went well!

Mine had rain in it as well, it mirrors the weather outside this week! It's from The Vespertine.

I like that description - soft and dense brings to mind a gentle rain.
My snippet is also about rain but rather more uncomfortable.

Happy to hear your surgery went well . :-)

Maybe someday I'll experience the Normandy rain. I'd like that.

Here's mine:
