The coastal storms can be a huge inconvenience for many who are stuck in the middle of them.
Power outages are common, ferry cancellations are a sure thing, and slippery roads can make driving a terror.
That being said, bearing witness to the majestic power of the sea in the midst of a powerful storm is something special to behold.
Massive logs get tossed around like they are twigs, the roar of the waves is deafening, and the wind against one’s face is almost too much to bear.
Yet cars line the parking lots along the Campbell River shore, while locals and visitors alike gather to feel the earth’s intense energy.
