Hello, and welcome to drrichardwild.co.uk

After completing a PhD in July 2005, I felt inspired to share the findings, results and research into snow and blizzards with other like minded people, but in doing so hopefully reaching a much broader audience.
Hence the creation of drrichardwild.co.uk

The site is dedicated to the history of heavy snow and blizzards across Great Britain; frequently asked snow questions, the latest snow news from both the UK and abroad and other snow related topics such as summer snows and snow folklore.
