It snowed a couple of centimeters this week in Shanghai, and while that might pale in comparison to places like, say, Harbin, it was still Shanghai's biggest snowstorm in at least five years. And that, snowflakes, is a big deal.

Shanghai residents really wanted to build a snowman during the blizzard, and build they did. Here's a photo roundup of some of our favorite snowbeings spotted around the 'Hai following the Great Snowpocalypse of 2018. Special thanks to our readers who sent in pictures!

And here are some more snowman photos circulating on the interwebs. We can't verify if they're from this week's snowstorm, but they're humorous nonetheless.
