As a rain fell in Prospect Park on a gloomy Thursday afternoon, nothing seemed to happen. Something newsworthy must have been about to happen, but at that particular moment, it felt as though nothing of consequence was occurring.
As the rain fell harder, small puddles formed in divots throughout the park. In one perfectly small puddle, near the Third Street entrance on Prospect Park West, a thumb-sized snail slurped through the water, and nothing else seemed to happen.
The snail was alive and well as passersby scurried under trees or into their apartments across the street.
