Shimla in a blanket of snow

Delhi, January 9, 2020:

It’s been a great few days for Himachal in terms of snow, and for once I am sitting in Delhi, gathering all the news and views from friends back home! For starters, Rampur had its first snowfall in 35 years, while Shimla experienced its first heavy snowfall this season – I believe there is a foot-and-a-half of snow around town! Meanwhile, Solan too experienced its share of snow.

The SDM office report at 10 am this morning recorded several roads and link roads in Shimla district blocked, though machinery and equipment were deployed to clear them at the earliest.

There’s news pouring in from Kinnaur too, but I’ll post am update on that a little later. For now, enjoy these photographs of Shimla in winter white, sent in by Shimla-based photographer Dr Ankur Dogra.
