Observation

It’s ridiculously difficult to start a novel that begins with a stormy night and not come across completely cliche all “It was a dark and stormy night.”
So, um… “It had been a long day, made longer by a heavy and persistent drizzle that trailed through [] Valley.”
Err, hum… buh?

    How about the first clear day after a week of heavy storms? A little twist on the cliche that may still achieve the effect you are looking for.
