Let it snow? The reports were finally correct and Greater Victoria has received its first snowfall of the season, and whether you’re delighted or annoyed by it, you can’t deny the beauty of pristine, white snow.

While the snow made for a pretty morning scene, below-freezing temperatures wreaked havoc for those commuting to school and work on Tuesday morning.

Temperatures could drop to –6°C Tuesday night, and more snow may be on the way, according to Environment Canada.

Here are 19 photos of the last nights and a few early morning snowfall in Victoria:
