I read that a hail storm killed about 1,000 English troops at one point during the 100 year war. I’m from San Francisco, and we get hail very rarely, and while that hail is somewhat unpleasant, it’s hard for me to picture hail so strong that it could kill a great many people. For that matter, though, I find it difficult to any extreme temperature. That’s why I have burns and frost bite all over me.
