About the Book
This book was written by Dr. Oliver Hidson as a hobby project where he documented the weather and weather systems for a small village in Gloucestershire. Covering a broad scope of information from annecdotal notes to detailed, scientific explanations of the weather, and how it works.
This book was produced from scans of his handwritten notes, photographs and even the typed up pages were simply scanned! - as such there is a charming quality to see an old fashioned manuscript, bound into a new book.
The book was a secret present for Oliver for his 60th birthday and retirement. He had no idea we were making it, and he thoroughly enjoyed receiving it(!) so much so, he gave me permission to make the book available publically. Now he is about to embark on a new adventure as a ships doctor, I hope he keeps a journal of that too.
Thanks for looking - Nelson.

Hi There! - Three years ago my son was born and since then I have endevoured to write my own bedtime stories to read to him. I have always been a fan of the more traditional faery tales, rather than their modern day equivalents, and I set about creating new tales with Robots (he likes Robots!) since they didn't feature much two hundred years ago. And www.grimrobots.com was born. A place of traditional faery tales, with Robots. A little later I read 'The Ode Within' by Stephen Fry, which opened my eyes to the world of poetry, something clicked, and here I am on Blurb with offerings of my work. I mostly work on these during my lunch hour, so things move at a very steady pace, but it keeps me happy - and maybe you too, but mostly my son, which is the whole point. Thanks for looking. Nelson.
