Touching the current scene ever so just a little, framing it from previously, the scene of the howling wind and pushed snow nonetheless resounds. it's a scene that maintains to hover prior to our eyes, letting us nonetheless feel virtually palpably the ability of the hurricane, its strength specifically to make noticeable the in a different way unseen pliancy of the bushes, their ability to undergo the onslaught of the hurricane.
