If you're reading this right now, chances are you were around for the OG #Snowvember which took place exactly five years ago, on Nov. 17, 2014. A large portion of North America was completely covered in several feet of snow just before Thanksgiving.

This past weekend, much of North America was, once again, covered in a white glittery blanket, and although the dump wasn't quite as drastic, definitely check out these photos of Snowvember 2019 — they'll totally make you want to curl up by a fire.

These photos of Snowvember will leave you in awe:

1. Snow Pups

If you happen to be a dog, lucky you — you're probably elated about this pre-mature winter weather. Because really, what's better than running around in your fur coat, soaking in the ice cold gloriousness?

Twitter user @AliceByNature and her pup are both taking in the winter wonder right now, and TBH, I wish I was doing the same.

Having a scenic view from your office is one thing... but it's totally different when everything is covered in a few inches of snow. 

Will Twitter user @some_eventful end up taking the rest of the day off to snowshoe in the winter scenery? Stay tuned.

3. A Winter Wonderland Campus

OK honestly, I wish I, too, could watch the snow fall from a college campus for a multitude of reasons. 

1) It would mean I'm still in college

2) With snow, class could be canceled 

Seriously, though, do you see this? If Twitter user @saramstricker doesn't go sledding in her campus quad I will be royally disappointed.

Growing up, there was nothing better than playing on the playground after it snowed. Between a slippery slide and piles of soft snow to catapult into off the swing, it's the best way to play outside... and Instagram user @momblockparty knows exactly what I'm talking about.

Whether paperbacks are your cup of tea, or if you'd rather swipe through pages on your Surface Pro tablet, there's no better feeling than checking books off your reading list during a blustery, snowy day.

And if you happen to be @gabriellasgoodreads, your books may be perfectly color-coded for the icy weather.

There's no better way to combat cold weather than with cookies, and @creative.cravings knows that all too well. Whether it's so the oven heats your house, or to prepare for hibernation, baking while it's snowing outside is truly gratifying.

Snowvember may not be as mighty as it was five years ago, but it's here nonetheless, and it's seriously gorgeous. Get outside (or get cozy by a window) and enjoy the scenery, because it's truly magical.
