Got Snow ?January 9, 2012
… everyone in the north got snow over the last three days , not just where it had been sorely missed ( the Solang ski slopes in Himachal green , not white , and apple farmers despondent ) , but in places no one expected it – like the Golden Temple in Amritsar. A number of places woke up to to snowfall for the first time in decades. Rohtang La on the Manali-Leh highway and Saach Pass was out naturally , and anyone planning to run up the Hindustan-Tibet road from Shimla should wait for updates.
Todays weather forecast : no snow in the coming five days in Himachal and Jammu & Kashmir. Time to let the roads thaw out ( Mandi and Jammu among others were out ) , and restore electric power.
