White and Christmas !

I had read on Tushar's facebook page a few days back that he was hoping for a White Christmas ! In Noida, having a white Christmas is not really possible, so I thought why not collect some white here in Milwaukee and make the day white for him ! so here you go bro, this post is for you and the white Christmas that you were hoping for !!!


This is how my walk to the office was a couple of weeks back !


A few days later, snow started melting and the green grass leaves were visible again !!


But a few cars were still covered with snow, like the one above and below... BTW I missed Radha when I took the picture below :)


The County team here has to work really hard to keep the snow off places where people walk...


This my friend Gaurav's Patio... we get a lovely view of the snow all around from his place !



And lets get back home to some warmth now... and this is me making the Shimla Mirch :) And did I tell you that it tasted yummy yet once again :)




And then it snowed heavy again last week... I even got a snow day off !!! It snowed about 12 inches in the night, bringing the entire city to a halt. Even the Milwaukee Airport was closed that day !


The roads were full of snow, the cars stuck, and walking difficult, with driving almost impossible !


See it was almost about a foot of snow like I said !!!


A Newspaper box and a cycle stand !


The shopping carts at a local store !!!

And I decided to venture out in the evening too, and saw some really beautiful views around... The snow does make a lot of things look much more beautiful than they are otherwise...

The Milwaukee Arts Museum view from my office, and the lake Michigan in the background.

A park near the Lake Michigan !!! This is where loads of Summer Festivals happen over the spring and summer time in Milwaukee !

Some more views from my office !


Some interesting pattern that snow flakes made on the glass walls in office !

There is more coming, as the snow does not seem to stop here :) Hope everyone has a great happy Merry Sweet Christmas !!!

Me is going out in a while to walk around in that park... and the temperature right now is around 0 deg Centrigrade !

  3. Ho hO HO Merry Christmas!

    Lovely snaps buddy. I was so keen on seeing snow fall...once I went to Manali for just that and it took me no time to get bored of it too!

    Was not too much into photography at that time...maybe that was the reason!
