The sun was shining but hail was raining down in East Vancouver Saturday afternoon.
The little pellets began falling around 4:30 in Mount Pleasant, and quickly picked up in intensity.
The hailstones were no bigger than marbles, but they blanketed front lawns and made a loud noise as they hammered store awnings.
Tried to go for a run but the hail hurts my face 😫 pic.twitter.com/sCCI0DQg1t

Environment Canada didn’t have hail in the forecast for Vancouver, but the weather agency is calling for showers Saturday evening and overnight. There’s also a chance of a thunderstorm early Saturday evening.
