Three crews are already working on clearing the Manali-Leh road . The road has been cleared , and is open for traffic , up to Gulaba , i.e. 3000 meters.
BRO talks of being able to clear the road by the second week of April (!) if the present weather holds. Himachalis prays for the opposite , for some late snows. A green winter in among other places Dharamsala and Shimla means problems not only for the snow mobile owners , but an already felt water shortage.
