Then and Now

A month back when I was in London, I yearned for a snowfall – well, mostly ‘coz I’ve never seen one (sad, I know – but I’m a South Indian, the only ice I see is in the freezer of my refrigerator). But no, the weather gods were not so merciful and gave me nice & sunny days (much to the joy of the locals who’ll do anything for a sunny day). So it used to be like this –



And you know what’s happening now? No? Well, the worst snow storm in 18 years, that’s what! So this is what it looks like now and I’m here in Hyderabad thinking why the heck I’m not there in London. Or why the heck doesn’t it snow like this in Hyderabad. Give me one good reason why and I don’t want the Equator and closer to the Sun crap, I need a better reason. Give.

  1. Hi,
    I live in London and had the worst snowfall πŸ™‚ The parks were full of ice, snow-mans and our garden was a gr8 sight….. (and it was my first time watching that much of snow)

    Good luck for catching snow at some point in future and until then keep seeing the ones in the freezer of the refrigerator [:)]

    Priya: No more luck at catchin snow..unless ofcourse it snows in Hyderabad – which is only if Hell froze over first.. 😦


  2. I love snowfall. Sitting near a window with a cup of hot tea and watching the snow fall is such a wonderful experience. I love it. Unfortunately, I live in a place where it snows once or twice a year and happens when I am at velai.

    Priya: Why throwing a spear in my boiled wound (yuck, whatay translation!).. we didn’t have time for Switzerland, so had to make do with Paris 😦
