Even if you're nowhere near ready for winter.

Fairbanks, Alaska was hit with over 6 inches of snow on September 25, making it the third snowiest September day in the city's history, according to .

Instead of cozying up under a few layers of blankets indoors, however, plenty of Fairbanks residents headed out into the snow to document the wintery scene. And while we wouldn't wish a September winter on our worst enemies, we must say, the city really does look magical dusted in the fresh white powder.

Check out some of the best Instagrams of the historic snowfall below.
