    it was cloudy and rainy day,on 18th jan,thunder showers were pouring the streets of dehradun.i woke up that day and decided to cancel my appointments for the day.i somehow got this intusion that if i go to mussorie or dhanaulti than,i might be able to see the snow fall,live.so,idecided to call my frnds and brother in law,and together we headed for trip to dhanaulti and mussorie.:cool:at dehradun before heading for hills 20130118_105849.jpg 20130118_105929.jpg 20130118_105954.jpg

    we tried our best to reach dhanaulti but,traffic jams and slippery ice repulsed us towards mussorie. 20130118_123933.jpg 20130118_123957.jpg 20130118_124208.jpg 20130118_124214.jpg 20130118_124219.jpg 20130118_124233.jpg 20130118_124245.jpg 20130118_124252.jpg 20130118_130611.jpg 20130118_130623.jpg 20130118_130917.jpg 20130118_130937.jpg 20130118_133500.jpg 20130118_133508.jpg 20130118_133527.jpg 20130118_133638.jpg 20130118_140443.jpg 20130118_140449.jpg 20130118_140527.jpg 20130118_140532.jpg 20130118_140648.jpg 20130118_140658.jpg 20130118_141214.jpg 20130118_141443.jpg

    Wow Punto babe looks way hot in the ice cold :D

    However:

    1. As soon as i saw da Reg plate, i thought you might have imported beauty from UK. Stupid me :uh :D
    2. I love the Abarth sticker you put on. It looks spectacular.
    3. As always BNW is spot on
    4. How did the beauty behave on snow? (Driving/Handling dynamics)...

    on reaching mussorie,we had our lunch and saw live snow fall.the desire to watch live snow fall costed me my car,which got stuck in the heavy snow about 2feet thick,we tried our best to keep the abarth moving but,heavy snow on the road resulted in loss of friction between road and the tyres,tyres were rolling at the same place,and the car was moving dangerously.that day, i pushed my car to the limits,the heater was on,fog lamps head lights were on,and the car was on full throttle for almost an hour.inspite of that the temp didn"t crossed the half mark and car didn't stopped.that day i realised the necessity of snow chains that can be attached to the tyres to provide assistance in cutting snow.so,we all decided to leave the abarth to a safe side of the road,and walk on feet to reach the bus stand,which was quite far from that place.:sad1 i felt so bad,as i am emotionally attached to my car,but i had no other option. 20130118_141502.jpg 20130118_144935.jpg 20130118_145009.jpg 20130118_145052.jpg 20130118_145255.jpg 20130118_150422.jpg 20130118_153620.jpg 20130118_153624.jpg 20130118_153828.jpg 20130118_155111.jpg 20130118_155202.jpg 20130118_155233.jpg 20130118_155246.jpg 20130118_160105.jpg 20130118_160120.jpg 20130118_160825.jpg 20130118_160829.jpg 20130118_161232.jpg 20130118_161236.jpg 20130118_162909.jpg 20130118_162915.jpg

    It was raining cats and dogs in Dehradun that day, and it was very, very cold. I preferred to stay indoors. I salute you Varun, for going out in the cold!

    Later in the evening, when it had stopped raining, while waiting for our Physics tuition teacher to arrive, I had a discussion with one of my friends about the number of Fiats in Dehradun. He told me that he regularly spots Varun's Abarth. So, I sent a SMS to Varun telling him about this. It was then that he told me that the Abarth is stuck in Mussoorie. I felt bad. :sad1

    Hey Zen, the format of registration numbers in UK is completely different. Check this out for more details: Vehicle registration plates of the United Kingdom, Crown dependencies and overseas territories - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    There is one district in Uttarakhand named Udham Singh Nagar. It has now become a cliché that a person hailing from this region, when asked where he belongs, says, "I am from US Nagar in UK." :p

    @ Varun, Wowww!!!! Your Punto looks absolutely hot in that snow! What a combination. Couple of shots which are taken from Punto's windscreen gives the idea about visibility levels! :eek: Thanks for sharing
