Owing to observational difficulties, the exact measure of success attained is a little difficult to gauge, but it seems fairly certain that raindrops usually carry a charge.
Much the same tendency exists with respect to all drops between B and E, but at F the wind has begun to accommodate itself to the new regime and to assume more regular forward motion, and as J is approached, where vertical contraction of the passage through which the wind must pass takes place, there is an increasing tendency to lift the raindrops beyond their proper limits.
She climbed frozen hills of waves through the raindrops, surprised when they popped like tiny water balloons.
Talon swatted at raindrops ahead of her, and she crossed her arms, shivering.
Successive abstraction of raindrops as the rain-clouds pass over ridge after ridge causes a gradually diminishing precipitation, but this is generally insufficient to reverse the local conditions, which tend to the contrary effect in individual ranges.
Somewhere a storm was gathering, but only a small cloud had scattered some raindrops lightly, sprinkling the road and the sappy leaves.
Raindrops fell as if in slow motion, and lightning stayed, brighter than the midday sun.
The raindrops were heavier now, working the mud on her face into a slimy mess.
