What did Bilbo and the dwarves find most disturbing when they finally decided to investigate the room where Smaug kept his treasure?

The cave was dry and unoccupied. What they didn't know was that it was the 'front door' for the goblins living in the mountain. The goblins discovered them and captured them, but not before Bilbo shouted a warning that allowed Gandalf to escape capture and ultimately rescue them.


Does Gandalf tell the dwarves that Bilbo is a spy?

When? At the beginning, Gandalf the Grey chats to Bilbo saying he is looking for someone to go on an adventure. Bilbo, being timid at the start, is a little rude to Gandalf, but invites him to afternoon tea. Gandalf laughs and with his staff marks the front door "burglar for hire, etc". Later a knock on the door and after a while 13 dwarfs and Gandalf are in Bilbo's Bag End residence: Dwalin, Balin, Fili, Kili, Gloin, Oin, Ori, Nori, Dori, Bifur, Bofur, Bombur, and Thorin Oakenshield. During the adventure Bilbo is separated numerous times from the dwarfs, and aids them in their escapades with his new found confidence and bravery and his magical ring.


What do dwarves think of the elves in The Hobbit?

Generally speaking, they don't trust them. The issue is that Elves are slow to decide and place little value on material wealth. Elves tend to rely a lot on one another, living very cimmunally, which is, essentially, the opposite of the Dwarves.

In 'The Hobbit' why does Gandalf knock on the door hard?

Because the previous morning, Gandalf had "scratched a queer sign on the hobbit's beautiful green front door" as a sign so that the dwarves would know that Bilbo was the one he had chosen to go on their adventure with them. By knocking very hard on the mark with his staff, Gandalf put a dent in the wood over top of where the sign had been, erasing any evidence that it had been there. That way, Bilbo would not blame Gandalf for all of the dwarves coming to his house to take him on an adventure.

Does precipitation come before or after a warm front?

Not normally before a warm front, precipitation comes before and after a cold front. When you have warm air and a cold front comes through, you mix warm with cold and that brings precipitation.
