hail or snow, I don't know

When I took the dogs out this afternoon, tiny balls of ice started raining down on us. They were descending more quickly than snow does yet hail is not likely at this time of year. It was only heavy for a brief shower, then it stopped. I guess the temperature differences between the sky and the earth were conducive for rain to turn into ice but I really don't know what causes this.
Here's a close-up of the ice balls on the steps of the hot tub.

The joys of the in between seasons weather. We've been having unseasonably warm weather this year. We should have snow on the ground by now.
