There are (at least) three ways to deal with a snowstorm in Toronto.

You can whine about it; you can laugh about it; or you can marvel at the beauty it creates.

Monday's snowstorm no doubt created plenty of inconveniences for people trying to make it to work.

But many others took a few moments out of their days to look at how the snow forged a gorgeous winter landscape that helped people, at least temporarily, forget how cold it was.

Here are 15 photos (and one video) that show Toronto at its most coolly beautiful:

Snow day | Part of me wants to be out shooting, the other wants to stay inside. Decisions, decisions.
