So I am in Baddi, Himachal Pradesh for a month for on site training and have been put up in the company guesthouse with a fellow colleague and dear friend. On the first free Sunday, that day is etched on my neurons I tell you, 7th Feb 2016, we decide to head to Chandigarh and got ourselves a local taxi booked. We board the taxi and chatterbox that I am, I immediately get talking to the kind gentleman who was driving us, Gurmailji as I called him. I ask him whether it has snowed anywhere in Himachal as I had visited Shimla a few months back, December 2015 to be precise and literally cried that I didn't get to see any snow.
You won't even be able to guess what his answer was!! He said "Aaj hi snow hua hai Shimla mein (today only it has snowed in Shimla). Season's first snowfall!! I just couldn't believe my ears. I looked at my friend and told her, chuck Chandigarh, lets head to Shimla. It's just a 3 hour drive after all. She agreed and we told Gurmailji to head for Shimla. Only to be posed with a small problem. We weren't dressed for snow at all. Gurmailji took us back to the guesthouse, we quickly layered up and were off.
