As per a report in The Tribune, local orchardists felt it was very unusual to receive snow at this time of the year in April-end. Shamsher Singh Thakur, who is a leading apple grower in Manali, said, “We are back to heaters. It seems that the winters are back.” Snow at this time of the year is no good news for them as they are yet to ascertain its effect on their crops.
