ST. LOUIS — The map above is from the STL National Weather Service showing the deeper snow totals in orange of 8 to 12 inches. 6-8" in downtown STL. 

The system that brought snow, sleet and freezing rain to the St. Louis area on Wednesday and Thursday was one of the most significant winter storms we've seen in a while. In fact, this storm was the first 6 inch or more snowfall within the month of February since 2/24-2/25 1993!

The storm closed schools and businesses, and made for treacherous travel on roads and highways throughout the St. Louis area.

Jason Mahaffey in O'Fallon, Illinois shared this fun video of "Olaf" the snowman from the Disney film "Frozen", showing up to help clear some of the snow in front of his house.

"Olaf" wasn't the only one out and about utilizing the snow blower. The "Grinch" showed up in Highland to clear some sidewalks, too.
