While people far and wide like to refer to Vancouver as Raincouver, some days the name proves its worth. That day was yesterday.

As the city braced for a mini-pineapple express, Twitter and Instagram users took the opportunity to hashtag #Raincouver. And yeah: it was definitely raining. Hard.

There was the calm before the storm:

And even some beauty during the storm:

Because when you live in Vancouver, you have to get used to this kind of thing.

But it wasn't all pretty..

..And it certainly wasn't activity-friendly.

It was on windows:

And roads:

And sidewalks:

And ultimately, even in the most horrendous downpour, it was home.
