Now THAT'S marble sized hail. Nobody said it IS a standard size, but tv weathermen always use common terms like that so people understand the sizes. Marble, golf ball, softball, etc. Even pea-sized. We're not professionals, so it's okay to use it

Please do not describe hail as "marble" sized. Marbles are not a standard size. Use something like quarter, penny, nickel, pea, etc. or just give a diameter in either english or metric units.
