What is sleet in Randall's dialect? Ice pellets or a mixture of rain and snow? 18:05, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

What does this matter? I would call it frozen rain. --Dgbrt (talk) 21:09, 17 August 2014 (UTC)
I removed the requirement of a definition of sleet from the incomplete tag. Sleet is understood to be cold horrible weather to be out in, whichever regional definition is used. I dont believe that the explanation would improve in quality by guessing the interpretation that Randall would subscribe to.--Pudder (talk) 14:07, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

This is not vital, but I'm surprised no one has mentioned that the first panel quotes the first line of "Let It Snow," famously sung by Dean Martin. To me, hearing his mellow voice in my mind's ear more intensely evokes the loving scene that has been spoiled by the boyfriend's non-romantic preoccupation. Must be a generational thing, since I'm likely twice the age of most commenters! 09:25, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

Is the title "Sleet" a reference to Leet? Jono hct (talk) 01:42, 5 November 2015 (UTC)

No. Sleet is the type of weather in the comic. It has nothing to do with "leet". -Pennpenn 03:54, 13 January 2016 (UTC)
