Falling calm

It's been raining most of the night, part of the day. The streets are slick with water now, so you see reflections of the moon if it's out, street lights, house lights. There's the hiss and trickle of rain, the occasional purr of a car going by. All very serene, even though it sounds like the start of a brutal private eye novel.

Yes, pure hard-boiled. Very nice image, though. I like listening to the rain through an open window of an evening.

An open window is a nice way to hear the rain, maybe with a few feet of distance. An open tent, less so.
