Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?
The fog that had enveloped the Machine blew away and they were in an, old time a very old time indeed, three hunters and two Safari Heads with their blue metal guns across their knees.
blow away = sl. blow off = abandon = clear away = melt away
Thank you for your efforts.
Re: blow away
In this context I would say "cleared up" or "cleared away."
