Rain as figure, no longer ground

I've spent most of my adult life in the Vancouver area, but it was only this recent exceptionally dry, hot weather that caused me to move rain from the position of ground to that of figure.

Now that the constant background rain can't be assumed to last, or even to come at all, we begin to perceive it as figure, no longer ground.
