The SEEALL Academy Zoe Chen Class 601 May 30, 2014 Blizzards One of the most dangerous, hazardous storms in the world is a blizzard. Blizzards usually occur during the winter and usually come during the cold days. Blizzards occur when the temperature is low and winds are above 50 miles per hour. They affect us by meaning humans and animals by decreasing its visibility, and dumping inches, maybe even a few feet of snow on us. During blizzards, it’s best to stay in shelter and not drive or walk on the streets because you may get frostbites.
Lenin promised peace to the Russian people, but it was an illusion that never came, for the country where my great-grandfather remained with the majority of my family soon sunk into civil war. Untouched by man, the snow lay still and smooth, cloaked in white purity. Guilt filled my every step as piles of snow crumbled helplessly under my heavy feet. At the door I paused to look upon the path my footsteps had made only to become discouraged at the beauty I had destroyed. Silently, she sat by the drafty window in her dimly lit apartment.
I don't believe in ghosts, but just my dad's suggestion of Grandpa's soul coming back made me feel uneasy. One particular night still haunts me and is one that I really wish I could forget. I went to bed that night up at my Grandma's house just like I did almost every night, a little apprehensive about what I might hear. At about 1:00 a.m., I was awakened by a loud bang on my window. I thought maybe it was just a dream, so I closed my eyes and started to fall back asleep.
When one winter morning I awoke to find that I could not smell the aroma of baking bread nor hear the clattering of ... ... middle of paper ... ...to wake and her coughing subsided I leaned in close to her resting my head on her chest. I could not help but think about how afraid I had once been of the Yew Tree Woman. I thought about the stories the older boys in the village told. I also thought about the lonely old woman on Downy Hill who had taken the time to fix a tea and mend a little boy’s bleeding hand. I knew then what the Yew Tree Woman really was; she surely was not a witch.
Just as I was about to go, Jacob stopped me and told me to look at the weather channel before I go. As I took a look at our big screen TV in the living room, my stomach started to growl from my growing hunger. The weather lady was talking about Ramirez 2 yesterday's big blizzard and how snow will continue to fall throughout the ... ... middle of paper ... ...lammed on my breaks! My steering wheel started to push and pull itself from side to side! As I desperately tried to get control of the wheel, I noticed out the corner of my eye that my car was spinning out of control heading towards the edge of the road!
She screamed but her Aunt ignored her and kept her locked up in the room. Finally Jane passed out after having some sort of fit. The room had large red walls, so the reader would presume that it was a warm room as red is a 'warm' colour. But in this room Jane is cold and this may be to do with her Uncle Reed's ghost. 'This room was chill, because it seldom had a fire; it was silent, because remote from the nursery and kitchens; solemn, because it was known to be so seldom entered'.
The setting is light cold snow which turns into a blizzard, in which Lockwood is unable to return to Thurshcross Grange. Mr Healthcliff makes it very clear that he is unwelcome despite the many attempts and obvious hints he makes to accept him for the night. "As to staying here, I don't keep accommodations for visitors: you must share a bed with Hareton or Joseph, if you do" Lockwood however manages to obtain a room to spend the night in. Zillah the housekeeper who we are now introduced to shows him the way. The night then continues through chapter three where Lockwood has a terrifying experience.
Hanging from the branch of an old oak tree he shivered, with only his wings wrapped around his small body to keep him warm. His feet were bitterly cold and the icy coating on the branch made it hard for the tiny creature to hold on. Vladimir fell into the bed of fluffy snow and frozen grass beneath him. He was all on his own and feeling lonely without his friends, who were fast asleep, hibernating in their dark cave. Vladimir, who was freezing cold right through and missing all his furry friends, began to cry.
It felt so lonely. It’s amazing that no matter the age once you know the city life and you go to an isolated place it’s very hard getting used too. My grandmother’s house was a wooden two floor medium house two windows not very attractive or welcoming. From what I recall it seemed mostly like a forest. There were no roads just paths leading from one house to another.
We weren 't sure if the sound were coming from the old lady’s house, but we went anyway even though I wasn’t sure if that was the correct thing to do, but they insisted that nothing would happened if we go together and see what was going on inside. The cat wasn 't in the porch anymore. As we walked you could smell the death grass and the scary view of the naked trees. We finally got to the stairs of the porch but every step that we did sounded like broken and empty. The glass in the windows was broken and the door was scratch too.
