Drizzlepiss | Slang | The particularly disheartening (some might say maddening) style of rain prevalent across the Lower Mainland between the months of November and April. Distinct from showers, pours, spitting, cats and dogs, et cetera. What drizzlepiss lacks in intensity it more than makes up for in monotony.

Usage: “I couldn’t get out of bed this morning for the longest time because all I could hear was the mind-numbing hum of the drizzlepiss…”
