Hi,
Here are some words from the novel Lady Chatterley's Lover(para. 132) by Lawrence(the University of Adelaide,here):
She must go home to tea. But she had to force herself to leave.
As she went home, a fine drizzle of rain fell.
‘Is it raining again?’ said Clifford, seeing her shake her hat.

Well, the word "fine" is likely to be "good" or "small". Which one is possible here please?
Thank you in advance

    Small: the drops are very small - minute - and often very close together.

    drizzle (ˈdrɪzəl) n. 1. (Physical Geography) very light rain, specifically consisting of droplets less than 0.5 mm in diameter - drizzle
