Quite an unusual, not to say intriguing, take on the prompt...

Is this a Brit thing- 'hang nails' are broken fingernails - so I'm wondering how they can drip?!
Am I being dim?

P.S. Those sticky-out things we'd call coat pegs...

I liked that last line, working on two levels.

Nice!

I love coming here, Tumblewords. Another wonderful capture using an economy of words. I love that you ended with a drip. Thanks for sharing.

I like how the storm is reduced to a drip inside.
