Looks like the "storm" is being very selective.

It really does depend on where along the coast you're situated, it seems. I know the islands took the brunt of the storm, which meant the mainland received a somewhat lessened blow.
That said, it seemed to be at the higher elevations where it was the most noticeable. I drove into town from Kamloops on Saturday night, right in the middle of the storm and let me tell you that was a mistake. I was watching vehicles being buffeted around on the road. More than once I saw a truck suddenly jerk from one side of the road all the way across two other lanes and onto the other side of the road just from some of the blasts of wind. My car is small and low and even I was being knocked around like crazy. And don't get me started on all the rain and snow that was falling at the same time.
By the time I got to Langley and Abbotsford there were tons of roads closed due to downed tree, powerlines and floods and huge sections without power.
