It (finally) happened: the first snowfall of the season has officially hit St. Louis. And while it's easy to get caught up in the woes of a snowy rush hour and dashing to Schnucks for survival supplies (it's an inch or two of snow, people! Come on!), it's definitely worth your while to take a step back and notice how gorgeous the snow-covered city is. We'll second the assessment that Post-Dispatch reporter Valerie Schremp Hahn posted on Twitter this morning: "Enough to look pretty but not enough to be a big pain."

Here are ten snowy shots you posted to Instagram and Twitter this morning. We have to say, they make all the snow drama worth it. Almost.
