Ok, the weather up in these mountains is sh*t.
I was doing the normal weather questions today and was trying to explain both hail and sleet. However, the teacher tried writing 'It's sleeting', and I'm not sure that is correct. Is it correct or is it such a rarley used word that it just sounds strange?

Yeah, sleeting is fine. As much as I'd rather have snow instead, or straight rain. Sleet is just depressing. It's like big ugly visible rain without the "elegance" of snow...
