HAIL WAS ABOUT TWICE THE DIAMETER OF A 1 EURO COIN.

It's a small world, take two
A visiting German meteorologist called in a hail report and estimated its size as being "twice the diameter of a 1-Euro coin" (read it with a German accent). I can only imagine the look on the face of the Weather Service person on the receiving end of the phone call.
