    Smile meaning

    Hello
    What's the meaning of these expression?
    1-Found herself awakened at the stroke of twelve each night by the rumble of heavy wheels passing in the street
    2-Her husband would not allow her to look out the window when she heard the sounds, telling her to leave well enough alone. (just underlined part)
    3-She stood spell-bound by the window as a gray fog rolled passed.

    Re: meaning

    1 The noise of the wheels woke her up every night at exactly 12 o'clock
    2 Not to be curious about what was happening
    3 She was fascinated/captivated as the gray fog passed

    Say:
    She stood spell-bound by the window as a gray fog rolled by.
    Or:
    She stood spell-bound by the window as a gray fog passed.
