Greetings from the Atmospheric River: Scenes from a very wet weekend in Vancouver (PHOTOS, VIDEOS)

From pups in rain gear to surging rivers and seawall-slapping waves, this weekend's rain brought out all the feels.

Did you get caught in the rain over the weekend?

The Metro Vancouver region was treated to a deluge thanks to "Atmospheric River" conditions that brought heavy rains to the area starting Friday and lasting off and on into Sunday. Sunday, by the way, was the "moistest" day of 2021 (so far) in Vancouver. 

Whether you braved the elements and ventured out for an adventure - or just to grab some dinner - or watched the rain fall from your window, people across Metro Vancouver and on up the Sea to Sky into Squamish shared images of the wet and wild weekend on social media. From pups in rain gear to surging rivers and seawall-slapping waves, this weekend's rain brought out all the feels. Have a look:
