Neither snow nor rain nor...exploding HAIL?!?

I don't want to find this funny. I mean, there's death and dismemberment, pain, anxiety, and chaos. Ah hell. Who am I kidding. I find all those things amusing. Still, it's almost as though the mighty hand of YHWH is wiping South Lebanon clean. Maybe it's a blessing and not a curse.

A hailstorm has caused hundreds of cluster bombs, dropped by the Israel Defense Forces in the Second Lebanon War last summer, to explode in south Lebanon, the Lebanese National News Agency said on Tuesday.

The hailstones, as big as walnuts, fell in a number of valleys in south Lebanon, the agency said.
I've never seen exploding hail. I wonder how the scantily-clad local weather girls would report that?
