There was chaos on Coventry's roads today. It started snowing yesterday and in the morning we woke up to find everything covered in snow.
I had some work at the University of Warwick and had to drive very carefully. I have no idea why but it seems that the City council had not gritted only the main roads and it was a bit scary when my tyres started spinning a couple of times in the side roads. However, it was OK on the main roads.
The funny thing was that it was bright and sunny today. Despite the sun, it was still freezing cold and waling to the main Scarman road building from my office through the snow, my feet and hands were getting really cold it actually felt painful. As I walked in the snow I was thinking of the body warmers I had come across on Handwarmers.net. These warmers are small packs which are air activated – which means they become warm on being exposed to air. I had brought some body warmers from Malaysia but the heat lasted only about half and hours and I was not really sure how environmentally friendly they were. On the other hand, the handwarmers available on Handwarmers.net can keep you warm for around 10 hours and furthermore, they are totally safe and environmentally friendly.

Anyway, I was thinking it has been quite some time since we last went on a holiday and decided that once I submit my thesis, we will go on a family holiday and fulfil one of the things on my to–do list, which is to learn Skiing. A friend told me that the ski resorts in France are fabulous this time of the year. Can’t wait to submit my thesis.
