It Was Definitely Raining In Vancouver (PHOTOS)

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.
