Polar vortex is currently hitting the US. Or is it?
Yesterday, Delhi -NCR was hit by a massive hailstorm. Nothing like we have ever seen before. When we received the news that Noida is almost looking like Shimla, we couldn’t believe it until we saw them.
Noida looking like Shimla
Mostly the effect on a few parts of Noida was more visible, that included the Sector 93, Sector 137 and Yamuna Expressway. It really looked like a quaint hill-station.
The residential societies started looking like a Winterland.
The roads got covered in a blanket of snow.
Everything came to a halt and netizens were just mesmerized by this act of mother nature. Sure, we love snow but watching this really happen almost freaked everyone out. Still, At least for a while, before the unruly traffic jams, flight and train delays began.
What does the weather department say?
The Director at private weather agency Skymet, Mahesh Palawat was quoted saying, ‘This is happening after at least a decade that heavy hailstorm occurred at several areas in Delhi and adjoining areas. Areas like Noida, Faridabad, Ghaziabad, Gurugram, and Palam received the maximum amount of hail and rains on Thursday evening, while central Delhi was lashed by heavy rains.”
The view from the top was close to horrifying
A Twitter user shared a video that appears to be recorded from a high-rise building of Noida. It clearly shows a side of nature that will make anyone realize how puny mankind is before its force.

The roads too changed color over a few minutes and looked like any hill station road, which definitely justified why people came up with the tagline, ‘Noida Looking like Shimla’.

This year, the last and final season of Game of Thrones will get realized. And with such events taking place, it really is making us believe – ‘Winter is here.’ What about you, have you seen anything like this in Noida or Delhi before?
