How hard did it rain in Steveston on Wednesday during a Once Upon a Time night shoot? Hard enough for a fan to dance in the deluge as it bounced off the pavement on Moncton Street. Crew delayed filming until the rain eased a bit for a scene of Emma (Jennifer Morrison) and Elsa (Georgina Haig) confronting the Snow Queen (Elizabeth Mitchell) outside the Any Given Sundae ice cream shop in Storybrooke. While an overhead scrim did protect cast from getting wet it couldn’t keep out the cold so Morrison and Haig jogged on the spot laughing ahead of each take.

Later the wind picked up, almost blowing the rain horizontal in its fury.

Fortunately the storm blew past eventually and by the next big scene with the Snow Queen you could see stars in the night sky. And the Gulf of Georgia Cannery lit up in the background looked like it’d been washed clean.
