Hello to all,

Thanks for reading my post.


Source:

A brief history of snow

Sample sentence:

The early 20th-century Arctic explorer Vilhjalmur Stefansson relates a salutory technique used by the Inuit to deal with a blizzard, a common phenomenon in the Canadian north. When an Inuit becomes lost, he will make himself comfortable and conserve energy, perhaps building an igloo, perhaps sitting with his back to the wind, moving around only occasionally to keep himself from freezing, sleeping if possible. Then, when the storm has <passed><ended><stopped> and he can see again, he will carry on to his destination.

Question:

"Passed" is used in the original. I wonder if the other two verbs are also acceptable in this case.


Thanks a lot for any comments, corrections or suggestions!

Regards,
JJXR
