Yes, this was the first time I have ever experienced real hail, (as opposed to the "what's that noise? really big rain drops?" type, or "I dunno, don't think I'll go out it's sleeting, or snowing or something pretty noisy...")
When they say "walnut size" or "tennis ball size" they actually mean it!
Only because our aging Toyota's finish is already a sad mess, and the roofs of the houses were recently inspected, as crazy loud as it became, it was only exciting and interesting, not scary.
