So your commute took two hours last night, you had a mountain of snow to scrape off your car this morning and it's bitterly cold outside. But maybe, just maybe, these beauty of a snowy day makes all the trouble worth it. 

St. Louisans took to their Instagram accounts during our first major snowfall of the year, and we must say, the outcome is rather beautiful. Take a look and remember these images as you start the trek home tonight. See, snow isn't all bad.

We may not feel this way tomorrow, by the time it's slushy and brown, but right now, we're feeling good about winter.
