8 Photos That Prove St. Louis Really Is Gorgeous in the Snow

Posted By on Wed, Feb 24, 2016 at 10:12 AM

Welcome to St. Louis, the land of summer temperatures one day and heavy snowfall the next.

You may be mourning this past weekend's fun in the sun as the snow falls and the roads turn to ice rinks — but let's look on the bright side, shall we? Here are some gorgeous photos that St. Louisans captured of the snow this morning. They're so pretty, you just might forgive the weatherman for telling you to anticipate only a single inch of snowfall.
