Swat: today it’s been raining cats and dogs in the surroundings of swat valley. The temperature recorded almost 0° c in lower areas while in upper swat it reached to -2° according to sources snow fall also observed in kalam, malam jaba and other cold hilly areas.
The people started using their warm thick jackets to survive in the severe cold weather. Rainy day in winter season compel natives of swat to eat warm foods like pudding, grill and soup etc just to enjoy the taste of weather. Unfortunately such weather in swat also leads to load shedding of natural gas which induce people to use expensive LPG, coal and wood for curtailing the situation. Moreover same weather is foretasted for tomorrow.
