Unless you were in a bunk for the last 48 hours you probably witnesses some of the crazy weather Vancouver saw over the weekend.
Wind speeds peaked above 80 km/h and hail was spotted across the Lower Mainland. Throughout the storm people took to their phones and cameras to catch pieces of the weather event.
They range from spectacular waves to some of the destruction and chaos the storm brought. First, the chaos:

Our staff are cleaning up #StanleyPark after yesterday's wind storm. Three trees are down on Park Drive near Prospect Point. All areas are coned off, but extra caution needs to be taken when entering the park today. If you notice any further wind damage, please call 311. pic.twitter.com/3c7QEoPGGl— Vancouver Park Board (@ParkBoard) March 29, 2021
But amongst all that, there were some beautiful moments.
Spectacular near Purple Sunset in Vancouver tonight. Wind gusts are still very powerful. Branches down everywhere in QE Park. @KGordonGlobalBC @50ShadesofVan @ensembleator @weathernetwork @JWagstaffe #bcstorm #ShareYourWeather pic.twitter.com/wZWpC0l4VS— Brad Atchison (@Brad604) March 29, 2021
