'Vancouver sure is sexy covered in sugar': Locals share photos from late-winter snowfall

At the same time city was peppered with power outages

Vancouver woke up Sunday to a (predicted) winter wonderland, with snow-covered streets, fallen trees and pockets of power outages.

The sunny Sunday morning was majestic for many in the city who got to take in the shimmering scene without having to worry about a commute or work. But for hundreds across the city and metro area, the snow was a bit more problematic since many side streets hadn't been plowed yet.

As of 11:30 a.m., B.C. Hydro was still showing at least six power outages inside the city, while Metro Vancouver contended with more than two dozen. The largest in the city affected 519 customers, according to BC Hydro.

As the snow fell overnight, some locals decided to venture out while it was dark out to catch the falling snow as it blanketed the city.

While many may have been frustrated by how their Sunday started, others took advantage of the sparkling streets since it's not everyday Vancouver gets fresh snow and a sunny morning.

Not everyone is enjoying the day, though.
