….during the past 10 days of monster snow storms is that there is only so much fun you can have being holed up at home and unable to go out. That is not to say that I have had absolutely no fun. No, we did start on a cheerful note, admiring the falling snow from the comfort of home. We read books(more on that later), had endless cups of chai,pakodas, bhutta and other junk. Only to realize that there is only so much bhajjis and pakodas you can eat. After a while the snow gets to you.
You head out to see vast expanses of fluffy virgin white and face cold blasts of air that hit you at your most vulnerable spot(the ears…hehe) but you still plod on, and take pictures and are pleased with this ‘winter wonderland’. (Trust me, walking at night after a round of fresh snow has fallen is like walking into heaven), but the next morning reality hits you like a slab of ice on the face. You will have to layer up, get out in the cold, and clean your cars so that they are ready to be driven to work the next day. And you want to accomplish all that before it gets dark, err, before 4:00pm! What is the big deal with cleaning off some snow off the car you say…er…..if only you saw how it looks like outside:
Yes yes that means you have to wade into knee deep snow to get to the car first. And when you are done cleaning the car, you need to shovel all that snow on the ground so that you can actually get the car out of that spot! So we had fun doing that to two cars, not once but twice in one week. Bhagwan jab deta hain chappar phad ke deta hain, after all. And we got chappar phad ke snow. We tried to enjoy, but there is only so much enjoyment for us warmth lovers. But, for now, here are a few sights:
