I was trying to catch an experience that might be at once soothing (as Doug's comment suggests) and irritating (something along the lines of Gina's comment), certainly intense (as Frank notes), so I'm pleased with the range of responses here. And thanks to John for those kind words.

Yes, good one, again ! (So, you overcame the writer's block... )

My first thought on reading your haïku was : But rain is better than snow, isn't it ? ;-)

Thanks, Monika. They come and they go: both blocks and good ones.

Daniel, a pleasure to meet you. Thanks for the visit.

Floots, old friend, great to hear from you.

Thank you, Juliet.

Good news, Gillena. You're in my prayers.
