23 photos that sum up "The Great Storm of 2015"

There hasn't been a bigger storm in 2015 than the one that went down today. In fact I don't think there was a storm to rival it since the great windstorm of 2006 that took out a large part of Stanley Park and inspired a benefit beer .

There hasn't been a bigger storm in 2015 than the one that went down today. In fact I don't think there was a storm to rival it since the great windstorm of 2006 that took out a large part of Stanley Park and inspired a benefit beer. So from here on out we're referring to it as The Great Storm of 2015. That is unless/until another storm comes along that's bigger and badder and takes out power to more than 200,000+ homes like this one did.

The power's back on at a great number of people's homes and in case your phone died or you weren't paying attention, here are 23 photos that illustrate #bcstorm. From the crazy wind to the crazy downpour, here's a look.
