March first and the Snow Dragons of Winter were unleashed over Shropshire – huffing and puffing great gusts of iciness over the land. Oddly, there wasn’t a heavy fall, and the flakes were very dry, but they did a lot of travelling. In the night the dragons racketed and roared over the roof and blew all the field snow into heaps behind the house.
This movie of blowing snow was shot from the bedroom window yesterday afternoon. Today we have slushy roads and biting winds. Who let Siberia in?

That is a lovely view to have through the changing seasons!
It is a good view, though one that is often threatened with housing development by the local landowner. We enjoy it while it’s there.
What good can come out of Siberia on March 1st? Great video to answer this question, Tish!
Thanks, Peter 🙂
I wish Siberia would buzz off back home….
Hear, hear! Am trying to pluck up courage to go to the post office. But at least the Young Farmers have just gritted the pavement. They are stars.
Oh, well done those Young Farmers!
Bold, brave birds out there!
Aren’t they just. Rooks and jackdaws, and maybe the odd pigeon.
I’m hopeful that we’ve weathered (so to speak) winter and are into the beginnings of spring. I enjoy snow and we could certainly get some yet, but right now we’re enjoying temperatures in the mid-forties (Fahrenheit, of course) and I’m good with that!
We’re promised 1 degree tomorrow. So that’s an improvement – sort of.
Remarkable! I can see why you filmed it, really does look like dragon snout plumes.

It feels like week not days of this weather, being forecast and finally arriving, I just want it to be the March that’s full of promise.
You may think it strange, Tish, but I can’t say I’m missing this at all or feel remotely like coming back to the UK. 🙂 🙂 Even in torrents of rain and gale force winds in Jerez. I just rattled my castanets and drank sherry.
You keep clicking those castanets. Who needs snow and freezing winds, if they can be somewhere nicer 🙂
A Putin plot? Love the cameo appearances of birds – visual and auditory.
Yes I liked the bird moments. Am not liking the cold though.
Talked to my daughter last night: -15 in Warsaw, and at last my down jacket that I left behind is coming into its own. Although it would be big enough to wrap around slender her twice.
We may have been a little to eager to proclaim Spring.
Too right, Beverly. We have another pile of snow this morning.
Oh those poor birds, at least you have a roof over your head…
Must get them some food. We’re about to tramp out into the snowy wasteland.
The background sound is soothing. Can make you fall asleep
Not in the middle of something important, I hope 🙂
Nothing can be more important than sleep 😁
This video is totally cool, Tish. I love spooky winter weather. I’m sorry I missed the winter in Norfolk, but I can assure the beast from the east made the temperatures in Norway drop as well. Record: -42° … 🙂
Gosh -42, and we’re complaining. Take care, Dina.
Far be it for me to cast aspersions on your directorial debut,(?) which is quite good,including the minimalist corvid soundtrack, but if you want this to succeed at the box office you may want to rethink the title.
The Bedroom Movie ?
Just a suggestion ….
Don’t care for the cold much, and am always disappointed if the snow doesn’t pile up… but looking at this video, I was wondering… and trying to imagine what the snow felt like on the wings of the birds.
Yes, it was pretty bleak for the birds. Then we had quite a bit of snow yesterday. Warmer today with rain and slushy everywhere.
We got the powerful winds and rain that made the world look like someone had slashed open the heavens and all the water had fallen on us, followed by a soupcon of snow to give us an early morning frosting. It’s supposed to snow — a little bit — tonight and a lot by the middle of the week. What a strange spring! I love the way the waves of wind and white blew across the lawn.
I was fascinated – one second white field. Next second back to green, and the snow blown away like dust. We’re in for rain next.
Very atmospheric, Tish. Bearing in mind that your bedroom overlooks the birds’ ‘bedroom’, did you notice the rooks and jackdaws roosting early to shelter out of that biting wind? The birds in our garden went to bed early on this day.
They certainly seem to have been turning in at the rookery – none of the late day last aerial performances.
