The past weekend saw a seemingly endless flow of icy rain fall across southern Ontario and Quebec—burying much of Eastern Canada under a blanket of ice and slush. In the Greater Toronto Area alone, some 250,000 homes and businesses were still without power Sunday evening.

And with the resulting scene simultaneously beautiful and treacherous, residents have been out snapping and sharing shots of the gorgeous—and sometimes eerie—chaos.

Here are some of the best shots we’ve seen under the #icestormTO and #darkTO hashtags. Thanks to the Instagram community for the images!
