I filmed this storm front coming in and it is like a square or cube.
I sped up the video to 16X so you can watch it like time lapse.

Weather has been so crazy of late and this is strange looking.
It snowed off and on as the weather went from clear to snowing repeatedly throughout the day.

I also thought it might look like a giant hand sweeping the sky as if collecting the pot of a poker hand.
What do you think?

Impressive! Made me cold just looking at it. You did good job with the video, taping and then enhancing. Handy skills for recording things like that.

Where are you getting a square or cube-like structure out of this? I see a wall of rain, but I can't understand how you think it is square

Geez Louise!
It's rain falling without a lot of wind below the clouds. Gravity makes it fall in a straight line.
To say this is "square" means most other storms would all qualify to be called parallagrams, since the praecipitation (the visualization of precipitation from cloud to ground, contrasted with virga, or visualization of precipitation that doesn't reach the ground) is usually being blown about with the wind.
You should get a good weather guide. I like the one that is published with the Smithsonian.

Ok the wall of rain is perpendicular to the cloud formation that moves at the same rate until the camera is moved and it looks square as in the intersectiong points of perpendicular lines or 90 degrees.

The shape of the front, where the convergence zone's horizontal and vertical ceiling and wall are definite, is, in this case, square.
Square may be normal, but it looks peculiar nonetheless.

Pretty impressive shot of that wall cloud as it passed by. Good work. The straight drop of precipitation indicates a lack of much wind at surface level, I would guess.
