If you're interested in seeing some more REALLY wild pictures of Texas hail, check out this post from April, where hail piled up three feet deep.
There were 79 reports of hail in the United States on Wednesday, many of which were clustered around the Dallas area. Of those 79 hail reports, 19 of those reports were of hail larger than 2" in diameter, around the size of a lime.
